“First knife skills. Then,knowing how to control heat. Most important is choosing the right product…the rest is simple.” -Justin Quek
 
      What better way to celebrate the springtime weather than fresh fish and herbs?! This is an easy way to turn an otherwise less flavorful fish into a quick,sexy,savory filling meal.  This recipe only uses 6 ingredients , four of which should always be in your kitchen . The dill works with the lemon to add a soft sweetness to the flesh while olive oil and bacon juices keep the meat irresistibly moist. I used uncured bacon with this fish because I didn’t  want the extra saltiness and added preservatives. If you worry about contaminants while eating fish you’ll be happy to hear trout has the lowest amounts of dioxin levels of all oily fish.
