I had three trout, about 10 to 12 inchers in the freezer I caught some time ago in Iowa, so I thought I better cook up or toss. I must say the stuffing was very good! Didn't change a thing! Bigger fish may have been better, small guys are best suited to pan frying, but this is a "keeper"!

I couldn't find a whole fish at the store so I bought a couple of steelhead trout fillets. After making the "stuffing" I spread half of it in my baking dish, placed the fillets on top, and spread the other half of the "stuffing" on top of the fish. Okay I didn't actually "stuff" my fish as directed but this turned out fantastic. The fish was a lovely and the "stuffing" was so full of flavor. It had a nice crunchy top. I will have to try this again when they have whole fish at the store. Thanks for a great meal!
