Heat a frying pan on a medium hot heat, add 2 tlbns of the groundnut oil, then add the place the trout skin side down and fry for around 4-6 minutes depending on thickness (you can see the flesh cooking up the fish). Turn the trout and cook for another 1-2 minutes until the fish is just cooked, then drain off the oil on kitchen paper.

Serve the trout on the noodles, and pour the sauce over both, enjoy :-)
