Pan-fried Trout

Here is a quick fish-coating mix to pack and take along on a picnic or fishing trip.
For extra "crunch', use cornmeal instead of flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour or cornmeal
2 tsp. dried parsley
1 tsp. dried minced onions
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried basil
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. dried lemon peel
1/4 tsp. pepper
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Two 9 oz. trout
1 tbsp. butter or oil

At home, mix the dry ingredients in a large, sealable plastic bag.

At the site, clean and filet the fish.  Shake the cleaned fish in the bag of dry mix.  Heat the butter or oil in a heavy frying pan, set on a grill about 1 inch above hot coals.  Cook the coated fish for 6 minutes, flip and continue cooking until it flakes.
