This is a great recipe for trout, whether it's freshly caught them or store-bought. Wrapping the fish in bacon not only adds flavor but helps keep the fish moist and tender.
- 4 small whole trout, cleaned
- 4 strips of bacon
- 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
- 1 lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1. Oil and preheat grill. Rinse out the trout and pat dry with a paper towel. Salt, pepper, and place a sprig of thyme inside each fish. Wrap each trout with a strip of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
2. Place trout on the grill or in an oiled grill basket. Grill 6 to 8 minutes per side depending on the size of the trout. When the meat turns opaque in the center and easily flakes, the fish is done.
Discard bacon, squeeze a little fresh lemon juice over each fish and serve with tartar sauce.
