Tried this last night with a huge piece of trout. I didn't have enough honey so I used just a little light agave and tried a different dry rub in different sections since it was so large: a tropical spice blend a mesquite bbq blend a bourbon & brown sugar and Old Bay seasoning on the last 1/4. All turned out fantastic Read More

I used this recipe with Kirkland mesquite BBQ rub as another reviewer did. Following their advice about it being too salty I left out the seasoning salt all together. Both the wife and I thought it was still a little salty but overall we didn't like the flavor at all. Read More

This is my favorite fish recipe to date! I didn’t have a pound of trout but I still used the same measurements with the seasonings. It came out just a tad salty for my 3 filets so I think next time I’ll reduce a bit for my small family. Everyone still really loves this. It was the perfect blend of sweet, salty, and savory. This recipe made it to my recipe box for keeps! Read More

Decided to give this one a go since I was limited on both ingredients and time. Turned out to be quite a pleasant surprise! I normally don't like honey-based sauces, but this wasn't overpoweringly sweet. It was a nice balance between sweet and smokey. I used a local Asian BBQ rub in place of the mesquite seasoning since they were pretty comparable and it turned out fine. Also, I used sea salt in place of seasoned salt. Careful with over-baking; 15 minutes might be too long depending on thickness. 11 minutes was more than enough for my fillets. Read More

Delicious! I had 2 large filets and since some in my family don't care for spicy food I left one more plain with just butter salt pepper lemon parsley and did this recipe for the other. What a hit! I used chipotle pepper for the mesquite. The honey/spicy thing that happens is a unique and wonderful thing for the trout! Read More

Had a package of steelhead trout filets and no idea what to do. Was a bit skeptical of honey and mesquite but this was easy and delish. I simply quick-thawed the filets in cold water sprayed foil with Pam drizzled each with honey and sprinkled w/ McCormack mesquite seasoning and just a touch of seasoned salt. Baked as directed with a little garlic bread and served. The combo of seasonings and sweet perfectly complements this fish! Read More

I used a lemon-pepper mixture with the honey. Very tasty. And once in a while I'll add a Cajun or carabean jerk rub to it. Again all were very good Read More

Tasty dish. Next time I will season the trout first then add the honey. Think that will flavour the fish a bit more. Read More

Did not have mesquite seasoning. I used a spicy chili lime seasoning and kicked it up a notch with Smoked Spanish Paprika and Ancho Chili seasoning all mixed with natural white honey. Squeezed some fresh lemon over it and sprinkled with chopped spring onions to serve. The result was awesome. Read More
