Lunch / Dinner
The presentation of a whole grilled fish is incredibly dramatic, but the process of making it doesn’t have to be. This trout — flavored with lemon, mint, and oregano — takes just 30 minutes!
Unless you prefer otherwise, leave the tasks of cleaning and preparing the fish to the fishmonger, and simply purchase trout that are ready to use.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.
Season the inside of each trout with salt and pepper, then arrange 1 mint sprig, 1 oregano sprig, and 3 lemon slices inside each one. Fold trout closed and tie with kitchen string. Gently rub the outside of trout with oil; season with salt and pepper.
Grill trout, covered, 3 minutes per side. Remove string before eating
To infuse the trout with flavor, place herbs inside and arrange lemon slices in a row along one half.
Tie each trout closed for grilling with three pieces of kitchen string, then trim off the long ends.
Use a large spatula to carefully flip each trout. Oiling them before grilling ensures they’ll release easily.
