Grilled Lake Trout

  • Active Time 25m
  • Total Time 25m

Serves 6 Tip: The quality of fresh trout is so pure and delicious that very minimal embellishment is necessary. A handful of wood chips added to your coals lends a simple backdrop of smoky flavor to the trout. A sprig of rosemary provides a slight aromatic addition.


  • Six 12-ounce trout, cleaned, head and tail intact
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces, divided
  • 6 fresh rosemary sprigs

  • Lemon wedges


Prepare the barbecue (medium-high heat). Rinse the trout inside and out; pat dry with paper towels. Sprinkle the fish cavities with salt and pepper. Fill the cavities with 4 tablespoons butter, dividing evenly. Place 1 rosemary sprig in each fish cavity. Spread the remaining 2 tablespoons butter over the outside of the fish.

Grill the fish until opaque near the center of the backbone, and the skin is crisp, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer the trout to a platter. Serve with lemon wedges.
