Trout contains the same healthy omega-3 fatty acids as salmon, but it’s less expensive, and many people prefer its mild flavor. If you’re not a trout lover, this easy recipe may change your mind.

Serves 2


  • 2 trout fillets (about 4 to 6 ounces each)
  • 1 lemon, cut in half
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 small to medium egg
  • 1/3 cup low-fat milk
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons raw organic honey


1. Squeeze lemon juice over trout fillets to moisten both sides.

2. In a medium bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, a pinch of salt, and some pepper.

3. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and milk.

4. Coat trout fillets in cornmeal mixture, and shake off excess.

5. Dip fillets in the milk/egg mixture and then back in the cornmeal.
