Pan Fried Whole Trout

This is another very quick dish to put together on a busy night.  Don't be intimidated by a whole fish.  Most stores sell them already scaled and gutted, so all you have to do is rinse them and prepare them.  I served ours with some broccoli rice, and they were perfect together.  Enjoy!
