Bacon-wrapped Stuffed Trout

This week's Carnival of the Recipes is being hosted by News from the Great Beyond.

Bacon-wrapped Stuffed Trout

3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 egg, separated
2 TBS melted butter
2 TBS lemon juice
6 oz. crab meat
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp onion salt
Lemon pepper to taste
2 scallions, chopped fine
salt and pepper
4 trout, dressed (about 1/2 pound each)
8 bacon slices

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Season the cavity of each trout with salt and pepper.

Mix remaining ingredients except egg white and bacon. Beat egg white stiff but not dry. Fold into stuffing.

Stuff each trout with the bread mixture, dividing it evenly among the
fish. If necessary, secure the openings with wooden toothpicks.

Wrap 2 bacon slices around each stuffed trout. Arrange in a baking
dish, in one layer.

Bake until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork and the bacon
is crisp, 35-40 minutes.
