Ingredients

  • 3 center-cut bacon slices, chopped
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped carrot
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup finely chopped mushrooms (about 4 ounces)
  • 4 ounces lump crabmeat, drained and shell pieces removed

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 (8-ounce) dressed whole rainbow trout
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • Lemon wedges (optional)

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. 2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon to pan; sauté 4 minutes. Add onion, bell pepper, carrot, thyme, and garlic; sauté 4 minutes. Stir in mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes. Place in a medium bowl; cool slightly. Stir in crabmeat, parsley, and juice.
  3. 3. Open trout flat as you would a book. Sprinkle trout evenly with salt and black pepper. Spoon about 1/4 cup mushroom mixture onto one side of each fish, and fold other side over to cover. Arrange fish on a foil-lined broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 5 inches from heat for 5 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
