    Rainbow Trout with Ponzu Ingredients
  • Filet the fish and remove large bones.  Cut each filet into 3-4 pieces.
  • Peel ginger and julienne as thin as you can.
  • Cut green onion into 1-inch length then cut them lengthwise into small strips.  In a small bowl, add cold water then the green onion.  Set it aside.  
  • Heat a frying pan large enough to hold all the fish in one layer.  When the pan is hot, dust the trout pieces with flour and place them skin side down.  Cook on medium heat for a minute or two.  Flip the fish and cook the other side.
