Broiled Green Trout Amandine

American.Kitchen's picture
  Green trout 2 Pound
  Finely chopped blanched almonds 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Butter/Oleomargarine, plus butter for broiling 4 Tablespoon
  Lemon slice 1 (Thick Slice, For Garnish)
  Parsley 1 Tablespoon (For Garnish)
  Salt To Taste
  Pepper To Taste

Salt and pepper the fish well, insert a piece of butter or margarine inside it, and be sure the broiler pan is heavily greased under the fish to prevent sticking.
Dot the fish with butter or lay a couple of slices of bacon over it.
Broil under a low flame so that the fish cooks through by the time its tail begins to curl and brown.
A 2 pound fish should take 12 to 15 minutes to broil.
Brown the almonds slowly in 1 tablespoon butter.
Meanwhile, brown 3 tablespoons butter, shaking the pan over a low flame until the water is out of the butter and it begins to turn brown and bubble silently.
At this point squeeze a section of the slice of lemon into the butter and then drop the lemon slice into the butter.
Allow the froth to settle and add the almonds in the butter in which they were browned.
