Never go camping without your fishing pole. The fresher the trout, the better the flavor.

  • Line the cavity of the fish with slices of garlic, and slices of lemon. Stuff the fresh basil and rosemary inside. Season with salt and pepper. Wrap the fish in foil, and set on wire rack over a campfire, or on the grill.

  • Cook for 15 to 20 minutes over direct heat, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove herbs and lemon from the fish. Hold the fish up by its spine, and comb the meat from the bones using a fork. Serve with lemon wedges for squeezing over fish.

I didn't have all the fresh herbs so I just used a good handful of parsley. I doubled the garlic because I had a big fish. 20 minutes was the perfect amount of time. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This was wonderful!:o) The lemon gets all caramely the herbs are fresh & the grill flavor comes thru in the flavor of the fish. I brined the fish for 20 min. to ensure it would turn out moist & I was blown away that fish on the grill could turn out this way! The brine was 2 c. water 1 Tbsp kosher salt 1 tsp. sugar for 20 min. Sprayed the grill and both sides of the outside of the fish with Pam....no tin-foil needed! Cooked perfectly without falling apart. Thank you will definitely use this again! Read More

This was a very simple way to fix fresh fish. We prepared some fresh Kokanee this way and the flavor was delightfully subtle. Thx Emily for this recipe. Read More

YUMMO Emily!! Hubby cooked freshly caught trout on the grill as one of our appy's for Mom's Day. What a treat this was! Added some onion powder to the seasoning mix but left out the rosemary. Didn't even need the foil as it worked well directly on the grates. We were all fighting over the last piece. Thanks so much!! Read More

I served this for my husband and myself for Valentines Day. I had some extra limes to use up so I threw them in too. I also added fresh oregano and marjoram(what was I thinking on that one?)which really made for a strange taste.I hate to let things go to waste so I'll often just toss them in with the other ingredients hoping for the best. I will try this next time as written. I cooked them for about eight minutes per side which was perfect. Overall a yummy fun way to cook fresh fish. Read More

Great recipe:) I cooked it on the grill in the backyard and since I think the fillets I got were thin it didn't take but 5-10 minutes to cook. It flaked right off the skin and had great flavor (I prepped them about an hour before grilling them to let the flavors come out a bit) Read More
