This is my first time being more than 3 hours from my family. I have missed some of the wonderful traditions my family has every year... golfing over the fourth of July at Star Valley, Wyoming, hunting over Labor Day weekend, bar-b-cues, and parties. This year, the trip I missed the very most was fishing at Henry's Lake over Memorial Day weekend. After going to the grocery store about a thousand times waiting ever so impatiently for the chance to buy trout, it finally arrived. The next day... a family treat, trout and hashbrowns. I would love to share this easy but tasty recipe.
saltines or club crackers (crushed into chunks)
Place 3 tbsp butter in frying pan. Put desired amount of hashbowns in pan. Season with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat stirring often until softened.
Dip filleted fish in egg. Season fish with salt and pepper.. Coat with broken crackers. In a separate pan from hashbrowns, fry over medium heat about 6 minutes each side or until fish becomes pale pink. With the fish, be sure to keep the pan buttered to prevent burning of the crackers.
Add a dash of lemon juice to the fish. Dish up and enjoy!!
