Fried Trout with Almond Sauce


~ 4 8 oz trout fillets
~ 1 1/4 cup milk, divided
~ 1/2 cup flour
~ 1 tsp salt
~ 1/2 tsp black pepper
~ 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
~ 1/4 cup olive oil
~ 1 stick butter
~ 1/2 cup sliced almonds
~ fresh chopped green onion
~ 1 lemon, thinly sliced

Soak the fillets in 1 cup of milk for 30 minutes.

Mix the flour, salt, pepper and cayenne together.

Heat the butter and oil together in a large skillet over medium heat.

Remove fillets from milk. Save the milk.

Dredge the fillets in the flour mixture, then the milk and then in the flour again.

Add to the hot oil and brown evenly on both sides. About 10 minutes total cooking time.

Remove the fillets to a serving platter and place in a warm oven, 200 degrees, while you make the sauce.

To the skillet, add the almonds and if needed 2 tbsp butter. Stir and cook until golden brown.

Pour in 1/4 cup milk, heat and stir until slightly thick. Remove from heat and let set a couple of minutes.

Pour the sauce over the fillets and garnish with the green onion and lemon wedges.
