Bacon Wrapped Trout Fillet
In addition to world-class ski resorts, the Rockies are world-renowned for the abundance of wild trout species that thrive in the snow-fed rivers and creeks snaking throughout the mountain range. You’ll commonly find rainbow, brook, brown, and cutthroat trout on dinner tables and restaurant menus throughout the Rockies.
For this recipe, grab the freshest looking trout you can find, and throw in everyone’s favorite – bacon – then top it off with a classic buerre blanc sauce. The sauce takes a little bit of time to make, but if you time it out right, your whole dish will be ready in about 20 minutes.
