Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Cut several diagonal slashes with a sharp knife in each side of trout. Mix lemon juice, vegetable oil, cumin, chili powder, paprika, black pepper, and salt into a paste in a small bowl; apply to the sides of the fish, spreading it into the slashes. Refrigerate trout for 1 hour.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat. A grill thermometer should read 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Spray a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold the fish with cooking spray and place it onto the grill.

  • Place trout onto the piece of foil and grill, turning one time, until the fish is opaque and the flesh flakes easily, about 5 minutes per side.

I took a shortcut and did not refrigerate for the hour so my bad there. Also I had 3 trout to make and it did not seem as if the ingredient measurements adjusted properly as the spices/herbs did not make a paste so much as a thick syrup. Too much lemon juice? Therefore the sauce did not stay on the fish very well. It was still tasty (it's trout for goodness sake!) but really could not taste the flavoring that much. So may give this one another try as I think most of the problem was user error.:-) Read More

Because we have lots of snow on the deck we broiled this trout that was freshly caught and it turned out great. Yumm! Read More

I gave it a try but I really thought it would be too spicy tasting and take away from the flavor of the trout. It didn't at all. This was a great new way to cook trout as my wife and I like fresh fresh river trout. Read More
