Preheat grill to medium-high. Clean and oil grill grate.

Combine coriander, salt, mustard, dill, and pepper in a small bowl.

Blot both sides of each trout dry with paper towels. Season fleshside of trout with 1–2 tsp. of rub. Coat rub with nonstick spray.

Place fish, skin side up, on grill grate, giving a slight nudge just as it makes contact with the grate.

Grill trout, uncovered, until outer edges of fillet begin to brown slightly, 45 minutes. Carefully slide a fish turner under the edge of the fillet. If the fish sticks, wait 30 seconds and try again. Flip the fish over onto the skin side. The fish is done when it flakes easily when tested with a fork or pressed with a finger.


Drying the fish with a paper towel is a simple but important step to keeping the fish easy to grill.


Spraying the rubbed trout with nonstick spray helps keep the rub on the fish during grilling.
