  • Serves 4

Preparation Items:

  • 4 whole trout, cleaned and gutted
  • 4 lemons, 2 sliced and 2 juiced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preparation Method:

  • Preparing the Trout: Rinse the trout under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Make several diagonal slashes on each side of the trout to allow the flavors to penetrate.
  • Marinade: In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, chopped dill, and chopped parsley. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Seasoning the Trout: Rub the marinade inside the trout cavities and over their outsides, ensuring the herbs and garlic get into the slashes. Place lemon slices inside the cavities.
  • Preheating the Grill: Preheat your grill to medium heat and lightly oil the grate to prevent sticking.
  • Grilling the Trout: Place the trout on the grill. Grill for about 5-7 minutes on each side or until the trout is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.
  • Serving: Remove the trout from the grill and serve immediately, garnished with additional lemon slices and fresh herbs if desired.

Preparation Time:

  • Total time: 30 minutes
  • Active time: 15 minutes
  • Passive time (grilling): 15 minutes

Drink Pairing:

  • A chilled Chardonnay or a light and zesty Pinot Grigio pairs wonderfully with the fresh, herbal flavors of the grilled trout. The crisp acidity of these wines complements the fish's richness and the lemony marinade. For a non-alcoholic option, a sparkling lemon water or a herbal iced tea would be refreshing and harmonious with the meal's flavors.
