Wild Trout on the Grill

Saturday morning hubby came home with this trout.

Beaming from ear to ear, yet still disappointed he only caught a few!

He had the locally caught trout around here before and hadn't really cared for it, but we decided to give it another try. I can't recall that I ever did. 

I made a simple marinade for eye, just eyeballing the measurements.

1/4 cup olive oil
Scant 1/4 cup of red wine vinegar
Salt & Pepper
2 crushed garlic cloves
Fresh Thyme from the herb garden
and a lemon, sliced

We let it marinade, then we wrapped the foil around it and hubby cooked it on the grill for about 15 minutes or so. I thought it was pretty good, though I wouldn't have mind it cooked a few minutes longer. Hubby, once again, didn't care much for it. Maybe it is just the garlic and lemon combo for me - gets me every time!

My husband will love this! He did just try catfish while on a business trip and raved how good it was. I'll make this for him (even though I'm a vegetarian) because he's been such a great dad, provider, and hubby for almost 44 years! XOXO

Haven't had trout in awhile! I almost forgot that I knew how to grill trout - so it looks like we will be trying this soon!

This looks great. I wonder if your hubs is like mine? Doesn't like the sour taste of lemon? I love it, especially on fish!. I am going to have to try it! Thanks for sharing.
