Southern Day at the River

Submitted by Christi

Just a few more pics from our day at the river with Ann and Randall Messick.  What a beautiful place they have. I’m not sure how they can bear to part with it. If you would like the house that has these spectacular views on the banks of the White River, visit them at

Today’s Lagniappe:  Fried Trout
Yes, another trout recipe since that is what the White River is famous for!

One trout
1 cup of sour cream
2 tablespoons of butter
½ teaspoon of lemon juice
½ teaspoon of salt
¼ teaspoon of lemon pepper
Cornmeal, for dredging
Shortening, for frying

Clean and wash the trout; then cut into serving pieces (keeping the skin on).

Add salt and lemon pepper, and coat throughout with cornmeal.

In a frying pan bring about 1/3 inch of shortening to high heat.

Add the trout, and fry for about 3-5 minutes; then turn and cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the trout is browned.

Place the trout on a hot serving platter.

Pour off the fat from the pan and replace with the butter. Add the sour cream, then stir with a spoon to loosen any dredgings.

Cook for about 5-10 minutes, but do not boil.

Remove the from heat, add the lemon juice and stir; then and pour over the fish.
