    twissis's Note:

    DH is an avid fisherman & our freezer has a near endless supply of trout he catches in the summer. We're also fond of eggplant & I have a cookbook devoted to it. I found this recipe at the Food Network site & it has been a favorite for yrs now. The recipe uses whole trout cooked on a grill, but DH usually filets our trout b4 freezing. In that case, I oven-broil the trout to an almost flaky state, spread the dressing atop the filets & complete the dish under the broiler to finish cooking the trout & heat the dressing. This is incredibly good & worth the extra effort. Enjoy!

      This was excellent!!!! I made it with salmon instead of trout, as I find the trout I have bought here in Switzerland is so full of bones even after filleting. I did it as twissis listed in the note and topped the salmon with the eggplant and bacon mix.. The topping was truly delicious. I loved the combination of flavours and it went so well with the fish. I served ours over asparagus and it made for a totally delicious meal.. A winner for us and we will be enjoying this often as I really loved how this came together and the wonderful taste with every bite!!!!
