PREPARATION

1.Place the flour, almonds, sage, salt, and pepper in a food processor and process until fine. Sprinkle the mixture on a plate, and coat each trout well with it. Sprinkle the cavities of the fish lightly with additional salt and pepper.
2.Divide the oil between two large skillets, and place over medium-high heat. Sauté the trout, turning once, until golden and crisp, 10 minutes.
Note: It is easier to cook trout this way if it is whole. However if the fishmonger has filleted the trout for you (make sure he leaves the fillets attached), open each fish and sprinkle with additional crumbled dried sage leaves before frying.
