Grilled Trout Recipe ♥

The weather is getting warmer, that means, fishing! Yes my fellow foodies I love fishing, growing up my dad was obsessed with fishing! He took me out and got me hooked!  I still have many family members that adore fishing! Weather it's family fishing in Wisconsin, Texas, Tennessee, or Seattle, you can't go wrong with a great fishing trip!  Here is a classic trout recipe for the grill enjoy! ♥

Ingredients ♥

4 small whole rainbow, golden, or mountain trout, scaled and gutted
1/2 cup mayonnaise
8 sprigs fresh thyme
8 sprigs fresh oregano
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
8 lemon slices, 1/4 inch thick
2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced (optional)
Apple wood chips, soaked in water for 30 minutes
Extra-virgin olive oil

Directions ♥

Put the trout on a plate or in a baking dish. Coat the outside of each with the mayonnaise. Stuff 2 thyme sprigs, 2 oregano sprigs, 1 rosemary sprig, and 2 lemon slices into the body cavity of each trout. Add a little garlic if you like. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to grill, for up to 4 hours.

Oil the grill racks. Preheat your grill using all burners set on high and with the lid closed for 10 to 12 minutes. When the grill is almost ready, put the smoking chips in a foil pouch and punch lots of holes in it. Wait until a good head of smoke is obvious, then add the trout. Close the lid and cook for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness of the trout. Because you are working with whole fish, use the 10-minute-per-inch rule as a guide. Remove the trout to a platter and let them rest for 5 minutes. Serve with a drizzle of first-rate extra-virgin olive oil.
