Grilled Brook Trout
This is a simple yet one of the best tasting ways to prepare brookies. You can do this in a skillet right over an open fire or wrapped in aluminum foil on a grill.
2 boned whole brook trout
2 tbls unsalted butter, cut into cubes
8 sprigs fresh thyme
6 thin lemon slices
salt and pepper
Rinse and dry the brookies. Season, inside and out, with salt and pepper. Place butter cubes in the cavity along with 4 sprigs of thyme and 3 lemon slices. Wrap each trout in a double layer of foil.
Prepare the grill for a medium direct heat and place the packages of trout on the grill grate and cover. Cook for 3 minutes per side or until the meat flakes easily with a fork. If using a charcoal grill, take some soaked wood chips and spread them over the coals.
Man, that’s goooood eatin!
