Whole Fish on the Grill

How To Grill Steven Raichlen page 286-289


Trim the fins off the fish. We purchased trout from Wegman’s in Fredericksburg, VA.  We were in the area visiting friends and a Mary Washington College tour for my Senior!


Trim the tails to give them a V-shape (cosmetic purposes).

Make a series of 3 or 4 deep parallel slashes to the bone in each side of each fish.


Arrange the fish in a baking dish, or we used a cutting board,and stuff with:

Fresh Dill



When you are ready to cook, put the fish basket (sprayed with oil) with the fish inside on the grill.  Turn the basket to cook the other side after 6 to 10 minutes and grill the fish for 6 to 10 minutes more.

We did not have a basket and cooked directly on the grill!  Serve with corn and caper butter!  The caper butter was so good I began to spoon it in to my mouth like yogurt!

The yummy smell will bring your family outside to see what delicacy you are grilling!


What a healthy dinner to share!
