Steelhead, also known as ocean trout, is a fine choice for its bright pink color and rich flavor, but any trout can be used.  If you don't want to use wine, replace it with the same amount of chicken broth, vegetable broth, or water.


How to Make It

Step 1

Zest and juice lemon, reserving 1/4 teaspoon zest and 1 teaspoon juice.

Step 2

Place flour in a shallow dish. Sprinkle fish evenly with salt and pepper; dredge fish in flour.

Step 3

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish; cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Remove fish from pan; keep warm.

Step 4

Add garlic to pan; sauté 1 minute or until browned. Add wine; cook until liquid almost evaporates, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in tarragon and reserved lemon zest and juice. Pour garlic sauce over fish.
