Charcoal-Baked Trout Recipe


4 fresh trout (11 to 14 inches)
2 lemons (or 1 orange)
chopped fresh parsley
curry powder
salt and pepper to taste
4 tbsp butter


Clean the trout and place four lemon wedges in the cavity of each fish. Sprinkle the inside of each with parsley, curry powder, and salt and pepper. Season the outside with salt and pepper and coat generously with butter. Wrap the fish individually in heavy-duty aluminum foil, and once the charcoal fire has burned down to glowing embers, set the fish on the grill to cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until the meat flakes easily. Serve garnished with a sprig of fresh parsley and more lemon wedges.
