NAME OF COUNTRY: ANDORRA

CONTINENT: EUROPE


This is my rendition of Andorran a la Trucha. I substituted whole caught trout for frozen trout and it still tasted wonderful. I have no doubt that fresh fish tastes better than frozen.

What Is Trucha?

Trucha translates to “trout” in Spanish. A tiny country situated between Spain and France, Andorra does not have the luxury of having a coastline, however, it does have many clear lakes and rivers where fresh trout can be found. Fishing is a common sport amongst Andorrans. Therefore, trout is the most popular dish in Andorra and is eaten almost every day in the household.

My Substitutions

  • Instead of fresh-caught trout, I used frozen trout from Wild Fork.
  • The traditional way of making the topping for the fish is fresh jamon, such as Iberian ham or Serrano ham, but I used unsalted bacon to accompany it with the trout. Not 100% authentic but still delish nonetheless!

Ingredients you need:

  • 2 trout, fresh or frozen
  • 4 slices bacon, fried and cooked
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tbsp oil (Olive or Grapeseed)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste

How to Make Trucha a la Andorrana:

  • In a frying pan over medium-high heat, place 4 slices of bacon and fry until desired crispiness. Take out and put on a paper towel to drain the excess oil. Set aside.
  • Wash the trouts and pat dry.
  • Mix the salt and pepper with the flour, then dredge the trout on both sides and fry them until golden brown on the outside and cooked inside.
  • Assemble by placing the trout on the plate and then putting 2 slices of bacon on each one.
