Yield: 6 Servings
|6||Trout fillets; or salmon|
|3 cups||Fresh mint leaves; lightly p|
|¾ cup||Dried mint; crushed|

Mash fresh mint with salt to release the flavor; add oil. If using dried mint, mix with salt and oil. Place the mint mixture on top of each fillet and roll. Wrap each fillet with one strip of bacon; secure with toothpicks.
Broil over coals, 4-6 inches from source of heat, for 4-5 minutes.
Turn and cook 4-5 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
