2 pounds trout cleaned -- 4 portions
2 tablespoons milk -- whole
1/3 cup oil -- corn
1/4 cup butter -- unsalted
2 medium limes
1/4 pound mushrooms -- thinly sliced
1/4 cup flour -- all-purpose
1 bunch parsley -- chopped

Preparation / Directions:

Put the fish in a shallow dish and add the milk. Turn the fish to coat on both sides. Set aside. Peel the lime. Cut the flesh from the white pulpy sections to make wedges. Set aside. Remove the fish from the milk without patting dry. Dip the fish in the flour to coat on all sides. Shake off any excess flour. Heat the oil in a skillet large enough to hold the fish in one layer. Add the fish and cook over moderately high heat 2-3 minutes or until golden brown on one side Turn and cook on the other side, basting often, about 8-10 minutes Transfer the fish to a warm serving platter and keep hot. Heat 1 tbsp of butter in another skillet and add the mushrooms. Cook, shaking the skillet and stirring, until the mushrooms are soft. Continue cooking until the liquid evaporates and the mushrooms are browned, about 3 minutes Arrange the mushrooms neatly over the trout. Arrange the lime wedges symmetrically between the mushroom slices. Sprinkle any accumulated lime juice over the trout. Heat the remaining butter in the skillet in which you cooked the mushrooms. Continue cooking until the butter is lightly brown. Pour this over the trout. Sprinkle with parsley.
