Broiled Sesame Trout

6 Serving size rainbow trout Or other locally available Trout, pan-dressed
1/2 c Lemon juice
4 ts Salt
1/4 ts Pepper
1/4 c Sesame seed
3/4 c Butter or margarine

With a sharp knife, make 3 light slashes on each side of fish, without cutting flesh too deep.
In a 13" by 9" baking pan, mix lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add fish and turn over to coat with marinade. Cover; refrigerate at least 3 hours turning occasionally.

In a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat, toast sesame seed until golden, stirring and shaking pan occasionally. Add butter or margarine and heat until melted.

Place fish on rack in broiling pan. Drain marinade from baking pan into sesame seed mixture. Preheat broiler if manufacturer directs.

Broil fish about 5 minutes on each side, basting frequently with sesame seed mixture.
Test fish for doneness with a fork. Trout are cooked when their flesh flakes easily.
With pancake turners or spatulas, lift fish carefully onto warm platter and spoon hot juices over it.
