Lemon Stuffed Trout
5 oz Melted butter
8 Shallots, minced
1 1/4 c Bread crumbs
Juice of 3 lemons
Lemon zest of 3 lemons
1 c Chopped parsley
3 Eggs, beaten
Thyme to taste
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
1 Trout, pan-dressed, boned
From stomach to head
1/2 oz Lemon juice
Butter as needed
2 oz Dry white wine
To prepare the stuffing: Sweat the shallots in the butter. Add the bread
crumbs, lemon juice and zest, parsley, beaten eggs, thyme, salt and pepper.
Combine the mixture well and reserve it. Rub the inside cavity of the
fish with lemon juice to help dissolve any remaining bone. Place the stuffing
in the cavity and fold the fish closed. Place the fish in a buttered baking
dish. Pour the wine around the fish. Dot the fish with the butter.
Poach in a 350F oven until it is done. Serve trout with the Hollaidaise
sauce, lemon slices, and parsley.
