Sunday saw the end of the World Cup and Germany lifting the trophy aloft. After an international feast of football, we’ve found a great recipe to celebrate their success and provide you with a feast of food!
Trout is widely used in Germany and this recipe from About.com is a popular simple dish.
Clean and dry a full trout before covering in flour and salt. Brown the fish for 5-10mins in butter before replicating on the other side. The fish is cooked when you’re able to flake it easily and it’s no longer pink.
After you’ve taken the trout from the pan it’s time for a simple sauce. Heat the lemon juice and butter with a splash of Worcester sauce and salt before coating the trout.
Serve with boiled potatoes and a sprinkling of parsley for a very German dish.
