A simple yet delicious recipe for grilling trout and serving with a varieting of accompaniments.
After a successful day fishing at the Tweedale Millennium Trout Fishery, I had some freshly caught trout to cook, which I prefer to do in a healthy, light manner. I am not a fan of rich sauces, thick pastes or such; I like fish to be prepared, dressed and cooked in a simple way, yet remain delicious.
To cook the trout like I did you’ll need the following ingredients…
- One lemon
- 4 medium knobs of butter per trout
- Fresh parsley
- Olive oil
- Accompaniment e.g. flavoured rice.
The first step was to gut and wash the trout, which I do by removing the head, intestines/guts and then place in salty water for a short while before rinsing clean.
With two beautiful pink trout ready to be cooked, I then lightly dress them with some olive oil, knobs of butter, fresh parsley and lemon slices (squeeze a little out on to the trout and then place the discs on top).
After cooking under the grill for 15-20 minutes I check that the fish is cooked by sampling a piece from the middle. Upon ensuring it is ready I served it a number of options, including flavoured rice, salad and potato wedges.
A really simply yet delicious dish. Thumbs up!
