Rainbow Grilled Trout Recipe

Ingredients (Serves 4)
Time: Under 30 Minutes

  • 4 (6 ounce) rainbow trout fillets, skin-on


  • 2 teaspoons soy sauce


  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar


  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil


  • 2 garlic cloves, minced


  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger


  • 4 green onions, chopped


  • Directions for Grilling Rainbow Trout

    Preheat grill for medium-high heat (450 degrees F).

    Meanwhile, remove any bones from your trout.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, salt, pepper, brown sugar, sesame oil, minced garlic, minced ginger, and green onions.

    Brush the flesh side of your rainbow trout with the soy sauce mixture.

    Lightly oil grill grate. Grill rainbow trout 1 minute flesh-side down at a 45 degree angle. Rotate the opposite direction another 45 degrees and continue grilling another minute. Flip the rainbow trout to the skin side, brush with more sauce, and continue grilling 2 more minutes.

    Grilling Tip:
    Rotating your fish at 45 degree angles gives it that nice cross-hatch appearance that you see in restaurants.

    Also, four minutes is enough time to cook your trout on the grill because it will continue cooking through even after you have removed it from the grill.
