2 tablespoons sweet pickle relish
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish or spicy brown mustard
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk or cream
1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
3 tablespoons yellow cornmeal

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 (6 to 8-ounce) Clear Springs Natural Trout fillets
2 tablespoons canola oil - divided use
2 tablespoons butter - divided use

  4. Beat egg with milk in a pie plate or shallow bowl.
  5. Combine bread crumbs, cornmeal, salt and pepper in another pie plate or shallow bowl.
  6. Shake 1 trout fillet at a time in flour to coat lightly; dip flesh side into egg mixture letting excess mixture drip off. Dip into crumb mixture patting to coat. Repeat with remaining fillets.
