Andorra: Catalan style trout

Andorran cuisine is heavily influenced by the Catalan people. This dish is lightly breaded and fried trout, topped with prosciutto that was cooked with oil, garlic, lemon juice and parsley. We referenced the Catalan trout recipe from this book, which was available for free through Google books.

First, lightly coat the trout fillets with flour. Melt a few tablespoons of butter in a large frying pan, then add the trout.
