You can substitute any whole fish in this recipe, but I like it best when it's made with fresh-caught trout from our local mountain streams. —Loretta Walters, Ogden, Utah

"This was a nice way to prepare trout. Since we typically cook them whole, the stuffing adds a nice touch. The fish is rich enough is doesn't need a lot extra so the lemon-pepper, dill and lemon juice is perfect."
