Recipe for family meals :

Trout and Bacon

It is many years since Hub-UK was first launched. It has been created from recipes contributed form all over the world, from professionals and amateurs alike. A great many of the recipes do not have any details as to who sent them in or from where they came. It would be a shame not to share them with you for this reason alone.

This Welsh recipe is one such recipe. If you know where it originated, or perhaps it is even yours, let me know and I will add the necessary credits and acknowledgements.

"The most indispensable ingredient of all good home cooking - love, for those you are cooking for" ~ Sophia Loren.


1 x Rainbow trout (1 per person)
1 x fresh rosemary
1 x fresh thyme
1 x fresh parsley
1 x fresh sage
1 x rasher of bacon (per person)
1 x a little butter


  • Fresh rainbow trout, cleaned but with the head and tail left on.
  • Stuff trout with a mixture of fresh rosemary, thyme, parsley and sage which has been loosely chopped and blended with a little butter.
  • Wrap the fish in a long rasher of bacon.
  • Enclose in foil and bake in a hot oven for around 25 - 30 minutes.
  • Open top of foil and shape like a boat, paint with a little butter and serve.
  • Serve with boiled potatoes and plain fresh vegetables.

This dish used to be baked in an open fire with the fish encased in mud.
