  1. Clean Trout first
  2. Optional: Cut trout fillets into 6oz pieces no thicker than 1 inch (if thicker, simply cut in half length wise)
  3. Mix together 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice
  4. Heat up the grill by setting it on the highest setting for 10 minutes, then turn down to medium.
  5. Oil the grill very carefully with olive oil and a basting brush (take care as the grill is very hot now)
  6. Brush trout fillets with olive oil/lemon mixture.
  7. Sprinkle salt and pepper over them to your desirable taste.
  8. Place trout on gas grill directly over medium heat in the center of the grill or cook 4 to 6 inches over medium coals on a charcoal grill.
  9. You should hear a sizzling sound immediately.  If you do not hear this sound, your grill is not hot enough yet.
  10. Cook your trout for about 2 minutes and turn over with a spatula.
  11. Cook 6 to 10 more minutes or until fish flakes easily. Use a fork to check the middle of the fish. It is done when it is no longer translucent in the middle.


Your trout fillets are now done grilling.  Remove them as soon as they are done and place on a serving plate.  Enjoy the taste of your delicious grilled trout!
