Wine Varietal: Sauvignon Blanc
In The One I Left Behind, Reggie and Vera’s return to Monique’s Wish is heralded by a kitchen disaster involving pan-fried trout. This recipe is the one that I imagine Lorraine would have used. It’s based on the way my grandmother used to fry trout when I was a kid. Like Reggie, I was always a little put off by the heads still being attached, but it is supposed to improve the flavor of the fish. Be sure to use caution when heating the oil – we don’t want any kitchen fires!
