Go to Montana and catch half a dozen pan-sized trout. Brook trout are best if you can find them (high country creeks in the Bitterroot Valley will generally oblige) – brookies are a type of char, so they have no scales to speak of, which makes for better taste & texture. The two trout in the picture below are a brown trout and a rainbow. Both were taken on dry flies from the shaded pools of a spring creek. The way God meant it to be done.
Here they are cleaned, scaled, and ready to stuff & wrap.

I vote for the ritz cracker method. I prefer my fish to be less embellished. Bacon seems like a BIG flavor for fresh fish.
First of all, I love your smile!
Secondly, Mtn Mike's Rx looks irresistible.
But, your in the skillet is so neatly composed….plus I'm wild about Ritz crackers.
Guess where I'm going for lunch today?
Target! Where they have loads of Ritz.
Thanks so much for the kind comment! I wrote a comment earlier, but not sure if you got it. Anywhoo…. thanks, I think my smile is my biggest feature! Michael always draws me with a big smile and basically no other features!
Have fun cooking and eating the ritz crackers! I hope you enjoy the recipe!!!
Cheers my friend,
Coco, ok, testing… 123

First of all, I'm still laughing at "fluffy dollops!" Lol! He cracked me up with his commentary! But, if I had to pick, I'd pick yours. I'm all about simple instructions in the kitchen these days and everyone loves Ritz crackers. 🙂
You are way too funny! Gosh, I wish you lived nearby! Yup, both recipes are delicious. I hope you enjoy it! Michael will just have to come up with more tasty recipes!
