This recipe comes from one of my favorite sources for freshwater fish. Especially trout or even salmon. Salmon I really love this way. If you bring all the ingredients with you when you go ice fishing or camping , you can make these really easy. The biggest object would be enough peanut oil to put in a dutch oven to a depth of 3 to 4 inches. It is sooo goood Deep fried Lemon Fish Ingredients: 1 small onion, minced 1 Tbls. olive oil 1/4 cup of flour cream (1/4 cup) Fresh ground pepper to taste 2 eggs( beaten) 1 1/2 cups flaked cooked trout or salmon 1 Tbls. grated lemon peel, use a zester 3Tbls. flour 2 tsp. water 1/2 cup (plain) bread crumbs Preparation: In a cast iron ( or what have you) skillet pour in your olive oil and minced onion and cook until tender. Stir in the flour to make a roux and then add your cream, stir constantly until it becomes thick. Take away from the heat. It should be thick enough so as to make a ball. Take 1/2 of the beaten egg mixture and stir into the flour roux. Mix in the fish and the lemon zest. Let this get chilled for at least an hour. If your out camping put into your cooler. While the mixture is cooking, make an area which will be used to make the fish balls. Take the other 2 Tbls. of flour and sprinkle on a cookie sheet or a piece of waxed paper. When the fish mixture is cool, drop the mixture by a tablespoon on to the floured surface.. Roll them and shape them into balls. Take the remaining egg mixture and mix with the 2 tsp. of water. Put the plain bread crumbs in to a seperate bowl. Now, dip the egg balls into the egg mixture and then into the plain bread crumbs. Do this till all the fish balls are coated. Heat the peanut oil till it reaches 375 degrees. Slowly add the fish balls to the hot oil, cook only 3 or 4 at a time. When they have reached a golden color take out and drain. Keep them warm till the whole batch is finish. This recipe sounds complicated but it is not. You will surely enjoy this even if your out there ice fishing (don't think you'll be doing any of that in baton rouge.....or orlando for that matter ). It only takes a little while to prepare.
