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.

simple ingredients ~ you can’t beat the simplicity of the recipe. the butter and crackers make this a rich and crispy dish!
bread crumbs ~ this is about how fine you want the crackers crumbs.
