Mount in the 1 stick of the butter, whisking constantly until it is completely melted and blended into the mixture. Strain through a sieve, set aside and keep warm. Season the trout and flour with Essence. Dredge the fish in the flour, coating each side completely. In a large saute pan, over medium heat, add 1/4 cup of the oil.
