Prep time30 minutes
Cooking time
Total time30 minutes


This makes a perfect summer meal served with boiled new potatoes and sweet corn salad or creamy coleslaw. Serve with jalapeño-studded hush puppies and Cajun-spiced tartar sauce for a southern twist


16 ounces
trout (whole, boneless, butterflied)
salt (to taste)
black pepper (to taste)
1 tablespoon
garlic (minced)
lemon (sliced thinly into rounds, seeds removed)
8 ounces
bacon (sliced)


Preheat the oven to “broil” or high.

Season the inside of the trout with salt, black pepper and fresh garlic. Spread the parsley and lemon slices on the length of one side of each trout, then fold to create a stuffed fish. Carefully wrap slices of uncooked bacon around the outside of each trout and secure with toothpicks. Place the trout in a large iron skillet or rimmed sheet pan and broil on high for 6 to 8 minutes. Carefully remove some of the bacon grease from the baking dish to avoid burning, then gently flip the trout and broil another 6 to 8 minutes until the bacon has crisped. Remove from oven and discard the head and toothpicks. Cut each fish in half and serve warm.
