  • 3 - 4 Trout filets skin on one side
  • 1 /12 cups bread crumbs
  • 1 clove of garlic smashed
  • 2 Tbsp parsley
  • 2 Tbsp Oregano
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 large lemons juiced (keeping the zest from one as well)
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup dijon mustard
  • extra virgin olive oil


  • In a small bowl, mix the lemon juice and mustard together well. Cover both sides of the trout with this mixture.
  • In a separate bowl, combine bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, oregano, red pepper, lemon zest, and kosher salt. Mix these together well.
  • Take each filet and coat them with the bread crumb mixture heavily.
  • Heat about 1/4" extra virgin olive oil in a pan on a medium heat. To check and make sure the oil is warm enough to fry, add a pinch of the loose bread mixture to the heated oil. If it starts to boil and fry, the fish is ready to fry.
  • Fry your filets for 6 minutes skin side down. After 6 minutes, flip the trout carefully and fry for an additional 2 minutes. If you are unable to fit all of your filets into the pan, cook them one at a time and place into an oven heated up to 250 to maintain heat while the others are cooking.
