Visiting my sister and she was given some trout that was begging to be grilled. Found this easy recipe and had all the fresh ingredients. This was simple and simply fantastic!!

I had a difficult time with this recipe. I had a large fish, and after I cooked it about 12 minutes per side, it still wasn't done. Also, I couldn't figure out how to keep all the lemons, onions...

Crowd pleaser !!! Make sure that you listen to the oiled grill part or the skin sticks !!

Delicious trout. Ours was a bit larger than average so I increased the cook time by 1 minute each side. The skin was charred but overall everyone was delighted with the outcome.

I'm a newlywed and my hubby is an avid fisherman, so I'm alway looking for something to do with his catches. This was simple, straightforward and absolutely delicious. Thank you!
