Grilled Trout Recipe (Smoked)
- 2 c. water
- juice of 1 lemon
- 5 cloves garlic, sliced
- 4 cloves shallot, sliced
- 2 tbsps. salt
- 2 tbsps. sugar
- 2 tbsps. chopped dill
- Made for 6 (12 oz.) boneless rainbow trout
Start by mixing the brine ingredients together and pour over the trout. Marinate in the frige for 4 to 5 hours. Smoke the trout in a covered grill for 25 minutes at 250-300 degrees.
Use a tight-fitting lid for your grill to make this technique work. Start by soaking wood chips in water for several hours. Build a charcoal fire on one side of your grill. Place a shallow pan of water in the other half of the grill. When the fire is glowing, it's ready for cooking. Than scatter wet wood chips on top of the coals. This should produce lots of smoke. Place the trout on grill directly over the pan of water. Put the lid on grill to trap the smoke inside. Within about 25 minutes the trout is ready and smoked.
Top with any type of heavy cream sauce, horseradish, or just add a little lemon juice.
