Picture this: You’re camping right next to a lake and you just caught a mess of trout. As everyone else is just waking up, you fry up some trout with eggs over the embers from a roaring campfire. Later that day, you fry up some more trout for sandwiches. Then, that night, you roast a whole fish stuffed with wild fennel. Sounds great, right?

Unfortunately, we can’t give you a dream camping trip. But we can give you the tools to eat like you’re on one—including a tip on the best way to fillet fish at home. Here, nine delicious ways to eat trout for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
