Ingredients

  • 8 bacon strips
  • 4 pan-dressed trout (about 1 pound each)
  • 8 lemon slices
  • 2 small onions, halved and sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • CARROTS:
  • 8 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions

Cook bacon until partially cooked but not crisp; drain. Place each trout on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 20 in. x 18 in.). Place lemon and onions in the trout cavities; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap trout with bacon. Fold foil around trout and seal tightly.
Place carrots on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 20 in. x 18 in.); sprinkle with salt and pepper. Dot with butter. Fold foil around carrots and seal tightly.
Grill carrots, covered, over medium heat for 10 minutes. Add trout packets to grill; cook 20-25 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork and carrots are tender. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 4 servings.
