The term used in Baltimore for fried breaded white fish, typically served in a sandwich. Despite its name, most "lake trout" is actually Atlantic whiting, which is neither trout nor from a lake. It is typically served with a number of condiments, such as ketchup and horseradish. Lake trout is an everyday food, and often served in aluminum foil in a paper bag at small take-out establishments.
