Trout Filet Recipes
« on: October 04, 2013, 01:49:35 PM »
 This may have bee discussed previously on the board, but here it is again. I am in need of some good recipes for trout filets.
 I have four large (pink) filets that I want to prepare without destroying them (frying). They are around a pound and a half each.
 What are everyone's favorite recipes?

One of my favorites recipes is the Foil Wrapped Trout

I prepare it this way during camping trips or at home on the barbecue! Fresh trout is steamed in a packet of white wine, melted butter and lemon juice. 

Ingredients:

   trout fillets
      c. table wine
   2 Tbsp butter, melted
   1 Tbsp lemon juice
   2 Tbsp parsley, minced
   Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Preheat grill for medium high heat.
Lay out two large sheets of aluminum foil so that they overlap. Lay fish in center of foil.  Sprinkle with    white wine, melted butter and lemon juice and season with parsley, salt and pepper. Fold foil around fish, and crimp the seams to seal.

Place the packet on the grill and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until fish is cooked through. Serve hot and enjoy!

Sounds good! Since my wife won't eat fish any other way than fried I will try two filets at a time for myself, as she has several whole fish for herself. Thanks for the tip.

You may want to try grilling them on the BBQ. I cook whole trout (gutted and the heads removed) on the BBQ, stuffed with fresh rosemary, lemon slices and slightly salted. I use a little olive oil both inside and out of the trout. I think you would be able to grill fillets with the same or similar ingredients. I use a grill basket so turning the trout is easy and virtually nothing sticks to the grates. This method of cooking is healthier than frying. I also prepare foil wrapped trout similar to wshawkins describes, but I find the grilled fish a little less soggy.
