READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Darkhunter

Posted for ZWT6 for Great Britain leg of tour. Welsh farmers with their abundance of home-cured bacon have long enjoyed this dish where the bacon is wrapped round freshly caught trout from their rivers.

The combination of the trout and bacon was amazing! I used a fillet rather than a whole trout so it was spot on after around 12 minutes. I placed the skin face down and the fat from the bacon brought out great flavor and a slightly crispy texture to the skin. The parsely I had was a little past its prime so only other thing I did was chop finely and toss through the juices as I removed from the oven to refresh it a little and scooped over the top.
