Super duper trout! with herby butter

Trout reminds me of streams and old men fishing for ages along the bank, I don’t actually think like that when I’m eating it though!. I do think trout is under rated and should be eaten a lot more as it’s so yummmmmy!

As it’s such a light, flakey fish and I wanted to try out to keep it that way. I decided to make a butter to place over it.
