A little bit of cayenne and lemon pepper add a real flavour burst to pan-seared rainbow trout! Serve with white rice or some short pasta in butter.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 cups (500g) plain flour
  • 2 tablespoons lemon pepper
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 cup grated lemon zest, divided
  • 4 fillets rainbow trout
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) extra-virgin olive oil

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

  1. In a large bowl stir together the flour, lemon pepper, salt, thyme, cayenne and half of the lemon zest. Combine the lemon juice and remaining lemon zest in a shallow dish and soak fish fillets for about 1 minute.
  2. Heat oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Dip the trout fillets in the flour mixture so that both sides are coated. Shake off the excess and place fillets in the hot oil. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until golden brown and fish can be flaked with a fork. Discard the leftover lemon juice.
  3. Remove from the frypan and drain on paper towels briefly before serving. Garnish each serving with a wedge of lemon.
