The French word 'meunière', as used here, means food (especially fish) which is dipped in all-purpose flour, sautéed in butter, and accented with citric acid from the lemon juice.
Here we added a couple more ingredients, i.e., chopped parsley and DIY Cajun seasoning to liven up the catch... so to speak. Very delicious! Try it. You will like it, I'm sure.
- 8 trout fillets, skinned
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 lb. butter
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 1/4 cup of parsley, chopped
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds, roasted (375 F. for 7 minutes)
- 2 units of DIY Cajun Seasoning
- sprinkle trout fillets with DIY Cajun Seasoning
- dredge in flour
- on medium heat melt the butter in a shallow skillet
- add fish to the hot butter
- cook slowly until golden brown on both sides, turning once
- remove fish and place in a warm oven until the sauce is made
- in the skillet, add lemon juice and parsley to butter and drippings
- mix well then poor over cooked fish fillets
- sprinkle sliced roasted almonds over the fillets
Note: In the DIY Cajun Seasoning mix, you may add up to 1 tsp. of Old Bay Seasoning to give your Cajun Trout Almondine an additional traditional southern flavor.
Bon appetite. Enjoy!
