Everything is better with bacon, right? That’s what I keep hearing.
So I mentioned in an earlier post that we have great neighbors that share their trout with us. We are fortunate enough to have this great product to play with. So how to elevate whole trout… why not wrap it in bacon?
It makes sense… the bacon grease drips onto the trout flavoring it from the outside in.
We salt & peppered the trout inside and out, then stuffed the inside with slices of lemon. Then we put one slice of uncooked bacon on each side of the trout, then tied it with kitchen twine. Then we cooked it on the grill, flipping it several times to keep it from burning.
In truth I prefer a simple crispy skin trout… but it was fun to try something new.
