Grilled Trout With Lemon Onion Butter Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings


  • 4 whole cutthroat trout or perch, cleaned and gutted
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • Juice and grated peel of 1/2 small lemon
  • 2 scallions (including tops), thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and cayenne pepper, to taste
How to cook Grilled Trout With Lemon Onion Butter:
  • To prevent fish from breaking up, it is best to cook them in a greased wire basket made for grilling fish.
  • Sprinkle the inside cavity of the fish with garlic powder. Rub or brush the cavity and skin with vegetable oil.
  • Place in the greased wire basket and grill about 6 inches from coals for 7 minutes on each side. If not using a basket, cover head and tail of fish with foil. (This prevents drying out and makes them easier to turn.)
  • Place directly on the greased grill. Use a greased spatula for turning.
  • Prepare the lemon onion butter by stirring the butter with 1 tablespoon lemon juice, peel, scallions and seasonings. Serve along with the grilled fish.
