Let me preface this recipe by saying that I am not real fond of farm-pond Rainbow trout! They all taste like Purina Fish-Chow to me so anything I can do to disguise that taste is a good thing, that said, I came up with this little recipe, and I've got to say it was pretty damned good! I had one butterflied trout for lunch and here's what I did.
(remember this is for just one small  fish (12 in without head) so adjust recipe accordingly for more, or to suit your taste)

In a large cast-iron skillet cook 3-4 strips of bacon
remove bacon from skillet saving drippings to...
saute a couple of scallions, ½ a small sweet onion, some julienned R/G/Y peppers, and..a handful of dried Cranberries
added a pinch of black pepper
a pinch of salt
a small spoonful of sugar
a couple of healthy tablespoons of Raspberry red wine Vinegar
just a dash of EVO
a dash of Garlic POWDER (not salt!)
cook until reduced by ½ and remove from skillet

put trout fillet into skillet and place under broiler getting as close to the flame as possible as the still hot skillet will cook the fish fast!!! (a bit of melted butter on the fish will help brown it quicker)
remove from skillet, then add the bacon/onions/peppers/cranberries/vinegar mixture to the top of the fish along with any pan drippings remaining.
Serve on a bed of Jasmin rice
(Jasmin rice has this killer perfume to it, once you try it you will never eat uncle Ben's again!)

my friends this is NOT a heart-healthy dish by any stretch of the imagination, (so nobody tell my wife) but DAMN was it good!
Try it some time, I think any salmon or trout, or other strong flavored fatty fish will do nicely.
Now I just have to come up with a clever name for the dish!

P.S. Almost forgot to tell you about the Chow-mein noodles, add them to the top of the whole shebang, they add a real nice crunch to the dish!
I'll bet if I have added water chestnuts to the veggie mix they would have been good too!
Mix it up a little, tweak it, remove something, change something, add something...
That's what good grub is all about!
