View Full Version : Trout experiment

Brought home 2 bleeders from Collins today and decided to through them on grill for dinner tonight. Its been 10+ years since I cooked trout and had no idea what to do with them. I skimmed through a few different recipies realizing that since I hadnt planned on cooking them tonight I didnt have most ingredients they called for. But what the heck, who needs recipies? So heres what I through together. I melted 1 cup of butter with 1Tbls of minced garlic and some minced onion. Once melted I added a couple splashes of Raspberry vinegarette dressing. I placed the trout in an aluminum tray and seasoned the inside with lemon pepper, hot chili powder, and Cow-Camp Garlic season-all. I added 1/2 slice of bacon to the inside of each fish, placed a slice of bacon on top of each and topped it by pouring on the butter mix. The pan was placed on the BBQ over low-medium heat. at the 10 min mark I removed the top bacon strips, flip the fish, and replaced the bacon for 10 more minutes of cooking. Was it good you might ask? My g/f's 14 year old son, who doesnt eat fish, ate 1/2 of the first one before I could get bones and skin pulled off the second. So I guess thats a yes?

Cleaned and waiting to see what to do with them

Much like you I haven't had trout in a long time. I tried the BBQ last fall, it was ok. I used my Salmon rub on cedar planks, it was good, but not great. Your's was a way better prep. But since then, I like to fillet them, and just put them in the oven on a cookie sheet, rub with olive oil, some lemon pepper seasoning, garlic powder, smidge of salt. cook @ 425 for 10-12min while I am eatting my salad so when I am done with my salad the trout comes out nice and hot, and ready to eat.

Sounds good AP but at this size trying to fillet would just be futile for me. Big hands that dont work worth a crap when I need them to combined with a sharp knife just not a good idea :wallbash:

Blackened trout. Better yet smoked trout as long as its wild and pink.
