I’ve never had the opportunity to have Rainbow Trout. I know…this is a huge oversight in my foodie adventures! My local grocery store had some on sale and I’ve always wanted to try it so I picked some up for lunch one day. I decided to make some grilled lemon herb trout on my charcoal grill.
I fired up my little sportsman’s grill, and cut up some fresh tomatoes and carrots to cook along with my trout. I tossed these in some olive oil, salt, and pepper then just grilled them right along with the fish. Put these on the grill as soon as it is preheated, and proceed to prepare the fish.
To prepare the fish rub the outside with olive oil, then season with salt and pepper. Also, salt and pepper the inside of the fish.
Cut one lemon into slices and place inside the fish. Layer in garlic cloves, thyme, dill, and parsley.
Place the trout on the charcoal grill, and cook for about ten minutes. In case your wondering, my grill is sitting on top of a custom steel table built by none other than Mr. Monday Is Meatloaf. I love it! I’ve put the Lodge version in my ‘Usual Suspects’ list if you would like to purchase one like it. 🙂
Flip and cook another ten minutes…
Flip one more time, and cook an additional five minutes or until done. Serve immediately. Enjoy your grilled lemon herb trout!
