Newspaper Trout
Thanks to George Hilbish for this recipe.

~ trout, gutted with head on
~ 1 full sheet newspaper per trout
~ lemon wedges
~ fresh basil and mayo


Lay fish on newspaper. Roll and fold up fish like a package.

Run under cold water until paper in completely wet. Gently shake off excess.

Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 375 Ė 400 degrees until the paper is dry and beginning to brown.

Remove from the oven. Gently cut paper length wise with a sharp knife or scissors. Donít gouge the fish!

Gently fold the last layer of paper away from the fish. This will pull the skin away from the fish.

Invert onto a plate and pull the paper away from the other side removing the skin.

Serve with lemon wedges and/or fresh basil and mayo.

Once the first side is eaten, you can pick up the tail and pull forward removing almost all of the bones.

Enjoy.
