1 tablespoon vegetable oil

For the sauce

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

For the sauce, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, horseradish, paprika, tomato or lemon juice, and herbs.

Set the sauce aside.
Rinse the trout and pat dry.
Season the cavities in the fish generously with salt and pepper.
Combine the flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and a little pepper in a shallow dish.
