Just choose a good area to set up the hot coals!

This recipe gives you a very simple way to enjoy eating your freshly caught trout. The fish is just seasoned with salt and stuffed with a rosemary sprig. It is wrapped in corn husk and covered in hot coals until cooked. Enjoy nature with a healthy meal of grilled trout and corn.


• 1 whole trout fish, cleaned
• 3 ears of corn
• 1 rosemary sprig
• 1 tsp salt
• olive oil


This recipe takes about 30 minutes to make. Serves 1 to 2.

Rub salt all over the fish including the cavity.
Put rosemary sprig into the fish cavity.
Use corn husk to wrap the fish.
Burry wrapped trout in hot coals and let it cook for 20 minutes.
Grill corn over hot coals that cover the fish.
To plate, remove corn husk wrap and transfer fish on a serving board.
Cut each corn into 4 pieces.
Arrange corn on one side of the fish.

Ideas And Tips:

• Wrapping the fish with corn husk not only prevents it from directly touching the hot coals, which will give it a bitter burnt taste, but it also gives the fish a very light corn flavor.

• Dill is also a good herb to use for fish.

• If you have lemon available, squeeze some on your fish before grilling or before serving.

Steelhead Trout Grilled Fish Recipe

Steelhead trout has a taste and texture comparable to salmon. It has a deeper pink colored flesh than salmon. The main difference is that salmon is much fleshier while the trout’s flesh is thinner is more delicate and grainy. It is also less oily than salmon. This healthy fish is rich in lean protein, vitamins, minerals, and omega-3 fatty acids. It is best cooked by grilling, broiling or searing. Steelhead trout is often noted by chefs as a more affordable substitute for salmon.

This recipe is a grilled steelhead trout marinated in a simple mixture of maple syrup and soy sauce. This is a perfect summer dish served with your favorite salad.


• 1 large skin-on steelhead trout fillet, cut into 3, crosswise
• ½ cup maple syrup
• ½ cup of soy sauce
• 2 tsp horseradish
• oil
• freshly ground black pepper


This recipe takes about 25 minutes to make. Serves 3 to 4.

To prepare the marinade, mix maple syrup and soy sauce together in a bowl.
Place the fish in a bowl and pour 3/4 of the marinade.
Let the fish marinate for 10 to 15 minutes.
While the fish is marinating, prepare the basting sauce.
Place the remaining marinade in a pan.
Add a horseradish and mix and simmer on the grill until the sauce has reduced.
Oil the grill so the fish fillets do not stick.
Lay the fish skin side down on the grill and sprinkle pepper on top.
Grill with indirect heat for 10 minutes.
Brush basting sauce on the fish halfway through the cooking time.
Transfer the fish to a serving plate.

Ideas And Tips:

• Indirect grilling is a method of cooking food with reflected heat instead of cooking directly over the flame or heat source. It is often used to cook larger or tougher foods that will burn easily if directly grilled. Burned exterior with a rare interior is not what you want for your fish, so that’s why this grilling method is used. Although indirect grilling takes longer, the use of indirect heat allows the center of the fish to cook thoroughly without burning the outside. To do this, place the hot coals on one side of the grill and lay the fish on the other side. Put the lid on while cooking. The result will be an evenly cooked, tender and moist fish.
