  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Rub each trout generously with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt; sprinkle inside of cavities with salt and black pepper. Place half the lemon and onion slices into cavity of each trout, along with minced garlic, and place a sprig of rosemary and thyme into cavities.
  3. Turn preheated grill down to low and place the trout directly onto the grill; cook until flesh flakes easily and the skins are browned, 6 to 7 minutes per side, flipping once.

Visiting my sister and she was given some trout that was begging to be grilled. Found this easy recipe and had all the fresh ingredients. This was simple and simply fantastic!!

We followed the recipe on one fish but on the other fish we substituted fresh dill for the other herbs. Both were delicious and had great flavor.

Excellent--simple and fast too!

Crowd pleaser !!! Make sure that you listen to the oiled grill part or the skin sticks !!

This was absolutely delicious! Restaurant quality! I omitted the onion, but it was still wonderful!

Delicious trout. Ours was a bit larger than average so I increased the cook time by 1 minute each side. The skin was charred but overall everyone was delighted with the outcome.

we all loved this. The kids were asking for more

I had a difficult time with this recipe. I had a large fish, and after I cooked it about 12 minutes per side, it still wasn't done. Also, I couldn't figure out how to keep all the lemons, onions...
