Allison's Trout

Recipe by  

"This year I learned to not only catch my own fish, but to clean, cook and eat them as well. Thrilling. This recipe is my recreation of a dish that was made by a man named Botsy, years ago, in the Rocky Mountains. It's delicious and enhances fresh trout without overpowering it. These could also be prepared in foil packets on a camping trip over an open fire. Although we camp, I don't often include a bottle of sherry in my kitchen box. When you add the sherry, pour a glass for yourself."

Great as is! Cooked it a day after we caught it, and it was wonderful.

Loved it! I didn't put in as much lemon juice since I'm on a huge fan of lemon flavored fish. I also added some onions but otherwise I followed the recipe. I'm sure I will make this again soon. Next time I'll probably try it on the grill.

This was simple & delicious. We BBQ'd the trout in foil on the was amazing! I would reccommend it to anyone as a flavorful delight that wowwed some veteran fish eaters. Kudo's Allison!

Love this recipe, my husband has requested it every week for the past month it is melt in your mouth delicious, had my dad for dinner last week he loved it so much he went home and made it for himself the following day.

Fantastic dish. I used OJ instead of lemon juice, and added Ro-Tel diced tomatoes for a little heat. Served over Rice-a-Roni, substituting OJ for 1/4 of water requirement. My husband said it was the best dinner he's ever he'd (and we've been married 10 years)! Thank you, Prettypie!

Loved it! I followed the directions except I didn't have Sherry Wine, I used a nice Petit Verdot and it turned out fantastic. I've made this now at least four times and every single time the family loves it. This is by far and away one of my favorite fish recipes.

I thought this was a wonderful dish - I used canned mushrooms since I didn't have fresh, but fresh would have been much better. Very tasty!

Awesome!! Added 1/2 an onion sliced and a minced clove of garlic... We also made a cream sauce with the reduction after removing the fish from the oven.... served with butternut squash cakes with fresh rosemary... they went together wonderfully!... will definitely make again... maybe spice up the squash cakes next time.
