Yield: Serves 4

* 4 small whole trout, cleaned
* 4 strips of bacon

Oil and preheat grill. Slightly cook bacon in a frying pan, so that it’s starting to be cooked but still pliable. Rinse out the trout and pat dry with  paper towel. Place a sprig of thyme inside each fish, and Wrap each trout with a strip of bacon and secure it with a toothpick.
