Lemon butter is perfect for any type of grilled fish but it worked especially well with this Grilled Trout. I can’t wait to try it with a trout that Greg will catch when we finally move to Colorado and he is able to fly fish again!
Grilled Trout with Almonds and Lemon Butter
Bon Appétit | June 2004
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 4 12-ounce trout fillets
- 2/3 cup sliced almonds, toasted
Combine butter, lemon juice, lemon peel, and garlic in small saucepan. Whisk over medium-low heat until butter melts and mixture is blended.
Prepare barbecue (medium heat). Brush flesh side of trout with some of lemon butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill trout, flesh side down, until beginning to brown, about 1 1/2 minutes. Using large metal spatula, turn trout over and grill until cooked through, brushing with more lemon butter, about 2 minutes longer. Transfer trout to plates, skin side down. Bring remaining lemon butter to boil and drizzle over trout. Sprinkle trout with sliced toasted almonds and serve.
