Serving a whole fish is an impressive trick for a dinner party, but wrapping a whole fish in bacon and serving it makes it fun for everybody! The flavors of trout, bacon and lemon come together to make one delicious and easy make recipe. This recipe calls for broiling in the oven for year round enjoyment, but you can also try making this recipe on the grill. Enjoy!
- 4 whole Trout
- 16 slice Bacon
- 12 slice Lemon
Defrost fish, if frozen and turn on your broiler to high heat.
Pat the fish dry and lightly season both the inside of the cavity and the outside of the skin with salt and pepper. Place the lemon slices inside the cavity and wrap the bacon slices around the fish. If necessary, seal shut with toothpicks.
Broil the fish for five minutes per side, until the skin of the fish and the bacon are both crisp. Flip only once.
Remove the bacon and lemon from the fish and serve either as whole fish or as fillets. Enjoy!
