Trout Smilie


  • 4 trout fillets, 6-8 oz. each
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
  • 8 oz. lump crabmeat
  • 1 bunch green onions, chopped
  • Juice of 2 lemons (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine


Salt and pepper the trout fillets and set aside.

Coat the bottom of a baking pan with some of the melted butter. Sprinkle a thin layer of bread crumbs over the bottom of the pan, and lay the trout over it. Spoon 1 Tbs. of butter over each fillet and sprinkle with enough bread crumbs to coat the fish.

Divide the crabmeat four ways and top the trout with it. Sprinkle chopped green onions over the fish. Douse each fillet with the rest of the butter and the lemon juice.

Bake the fish at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes. Two minutes before removing the fish from the oven, spoon 1 Tbs. of wine over each fillet. Serve immediately.
