Trout in Creme Fraiche Recipe

This is a recipe which uses fresh trout which was at one time plentiful in the Scottish rivers. The addition of the creme fraiche (or fresh if you mispell it) gives it a subtle flavouring all of its own.


  • 4 trout, cleaned
  • 50g (2 oz) margarine
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 225g (8oz) button mushrooms, quartered
  • 50ml (2 floz) white wine
  • 150ml (5floz) creme fraiche
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 x 15ml spoons (2 tbsps) fresh breadcrumbs
  • Dill or parsley, to garnish


Lay the trout in a greased ovenproof dish. Melt half the margarine and saute garlic and mushrooms for 2-3 minutes. Add wine and spoon over the trout. Cover the dish with foil and bake in preheated oven l80~C, 350~F Gas No.4 for 10-15 minutes until tender

Heat the creme fraiche gently and pour over the fish. Season to taste. Sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and dot with the remaining margarine. Brown under a hot grill and serve immediately.
