Crusted Trout 'n Fries

Two beautiful trout will make diner for my husband a delight.  He loves fresh fish.  He loves them fried but hasn't figured out yet that I have been crusting them and he is really happy with what is showing up on his plate.  These are not fillets but dressed whole fishes with the heads removed.

You will need 2 fresh trout
1 egg beaten well
4-6 T. water
hot sauce
2-3 C. crushed plain corn flakes
butter flavor (or other your choice) cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. and line a large sheet pan with foil.  Coat the foil well with cooking spray and set aside.

Wash and dry the fish.  Lightly salt and pepper them inside and out.  Place the beaten egg, water, and hot sauce in a long narrow dish and mix well.  Dip the fish in the egg mixture and roll until well coated.  Toss the fish onto a large platter with the corn flake crumbs rolling them until well coated.  Spray them with butter flavored cooking spray.  Carefully place the fish onto the prepared pan and oven roast about 12-12 minutes on each side.  The fish is done when it flakes.  Cooking time depends on the size of the fish.
