Trout on the Q

Post by Cramden » Mon Jul 13, 2009 4:40 pm

I have some frozen lake trout from a spring fishing trip. The last batch were done indirect on the Weber Gold with some apple chips. All we tasted was the smoke. The chips were dry to avoid bitterness. I used a minimal amount of wood.
Needless to say, the fish were a big disappointment.
Any suggestions for the last batch of trout?

Cheers

I've been wanting to try trout baked in corn husks. Even better yet, 1/3 fillets topped with salsa or a few drops of tequila and real maple syrup, wrapped in corn husks and planked.
How's that grab ya? I've been dreaming of it for ages now and then I just saw Rob Rainford do exactly that with bass on a recent episode of License to Grill.
For smoke I'd use a wee bit of maple, to go with the syrup, and maybe a little apple.

my standby recipe for salmon, and I can't see why it would not work for trout, is to put the fish - filets or steaks, in a ziplock with maple syrup to cover and marinate overnight. Cook til barely done over low heat (indirect is best). The marinade replaces some of the fat in the fish leaving the flavour, too.
Cook over apple or pecan.

Thanks for the ideas. They sound yummy. Will give them a try real soon.

Here's on for ya.
Roast Roma tomatoes with olio, dried oregano and basil, S&P. Roast low and slow until they start to break down, may take a couple of hours on a Sunday. In a mortar and pestle, add olive oil, roasted tomatoes, fresh basil, roasted garlic, goat cheese and toasted pine nuts to make a paste ( if using a processor, careful not to over process. You want it to have a bit of texture, could just use a knife ). Stuff it into a pork tenderloin or slather it over a loin roast ( make it with a little more olio so it's wet for coating a roast ) . Low and slow and baste. I'm fairly new to smokin, but a bit of apple wood might not hurt.
Never had a complaint on this one.

Cheers

Sometimes easy and simple is the best ,,

my 2 cents worth, and the way I alway do my trout is as follows.

lay trout on a piece of heavy duty foil

salt / pepper
butter and onions
lemon slices

another peice of foil on top to seal the package...

approx 10 minutes on a medium temp. gas grill

Beauty , ever time...

Mike, that sounds like trout vermillion. This is cooked without sealing the top.

As a thought you could do it in a water smoker too, very little wood, some flavorings stuff in the water pan, low and slow. Could be good. I just wish I could find haddock here, smoked haddock is da bomb.
When it comes to beatin's, baby you deserve the best.
