Yield: Serves 4
Spread out the flour on a platter and mix in the seasonings. Heat enough butter in a sauté pan (or pans) to thoroughly coat the bottom. Roll the fish in the seasoned flour, shake off excess, and fry until brown and crisp (about five minutes for skinny fillets, 5-7 minutes a side for whole trout).
Remove and keep warm. Pour off the burnt butter. Add another 2 tablespoons butter to the pan. When it froths, squeeze the lemon in, swirl around, and pour over the fish. Sprinkle with parsley and toasted almonds.
Serve with poached potatoes, sautéed green beans, or asparagus.
