We recently celebrated a friend’s birthday by fly fishing on the Snoqualamie River. This particular stretch of waterway is ‘catch and release,’ so to satisfy our craving for fresh fish we picked up some trout from a local market and brought it with us. Pre-cleaned for easy cooking, we stuffed the cavity with 1tbsp butter, fresh thyme, salt + pepper. We fried the fish in a butter-laden cast iron pan on a camp stove and served with lemon wedges. Doesn’t get much more simple or satisfying!
