Cooking Trout

I'm thinking of trying to fry up the trout I catch next time, but do you think they taste better just with a little olive oil in tinfoil? That's the strat I went with on this trip.  I stuffed it with ramps I foraged, too. Is there anything else I could try to forage in Wisconsin that would go with a catch and cook?

No wrong way to cook trout.  I think pan fried crispy skin trout is the best!  Pan fried with butter and morels is top notch!

Time to pick some up on my way in Superior along the strip into town before heading thru Duluth on the way to Gunflint trail. I bought some of the cheaper broken grains as well as the better stuff and found it cooks up quicker than whole grains. It takes a full hour to cook wild rice; partial grains, 45 min.

wild rice?  go to North Bay Trading company in Brule WI.  They offer great wild rice online.  The BEST is the stuff from Saskatchewan.  Super long grain and fantastic!!  Not knocking wild rice from MN or WI which tends to be shorter grain but the Saskatchewan is wonderful.  Harvested by Cree indians using air boats.  Canadian organic wild rice.  You will not be sorry if you buy this.  

Bought it many years ago and we now buy a 5 lb bag every 3 years.  It stores indefinitely.  Makes great gifts too!  We repackage in small ziplock bags when using 1/2-1 lb for a gift for someone.

I trade for it when I am with my Ojibwe friends.  I will PM a trader who usually sells his supply.

Trouter, where could I buy some wild Wisconsin rice? I've been meaning to try to find some of that.

Ramps are always good for cooking.   I usually fry trout with a touch of bacon grease.   

Has anyone cooked trout with morel mushrooms ??

Fresh trout does go well with fresh wild asparagus.

As a rule, wild rice is part of any fish meal I cook.

I grew up in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in South Central Pennsylvania. Cooked and ate a lot of trout. We used to stream dress the fish leaving the head on. Stuffing the cavity with butter, spring onions was our way of eating them wrapping them in foil and slow cooking over campfire coals. Frying them never occurred to me. We only fried pannies and small bass. Lately I've adjusted that recipe to include tomatoes, fresh garlic, and fresh jalapenos. I think baked or grilled is best, picking around the bones. Never had ramps. Gonna have to try that man.
