Made this exactly as directed, except I substituted imitation crab for lump, which may have compromised the flavor slightly. Over all this was a very good recipe that wasn't hard to make at all. Will make again for sure!
Lump Crab-Stuffed Trout
Sweet crabmeat fills these whole trout and helps keep the fillets moist under high broiler heat.
