Baked Spotted Trout with Bacon Stuffing


  • 4 spotted trout fillets
  • 6 bacon slices
  • ¼ cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 cups soft bread crumbs
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon sage
  • ¼ teaspoon thyme leaves
  • 1 ½ tablespoons butter, melted
  • salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 375° F.

In a medium saucepan, cook bacon. Remove bacon and dice. Discard all but 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings. Add onion and cook until tender. Stir in crumbs, broth, ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, sage, thyme and bacon.

Layout fillets on a work surface, skin sides up. Spoon stuffing onto fillets. Roll up each fillet and place seam side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with 1 ½ tablespoons melted butter. Lightly salt and pepper. Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes or until done. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of the fillets.
