Sneak Peak of my upcoming cookbook…Grilled Rainbow Trout

Grilled Rainbow Trout is a regular on our dinner rotation.  It’s so simple that I can even manage to put it on the table during the most hectic evenings.

Grilled Rainbow Trout

Grilling fish is fabulous for so many reasons. Ahhh, let me count the ways: 1) It’s quick 2) It’s easy 3) No dishes 4) It’s healthy 5) It’s delicious 6) It’s still quick & easy! The other night I grilled Rainbow Trout for the gang since my younger critics find it to be a mild fish that is pleasing to the palate.
Prep Time
5 minutes
Cook Time
5 minutes
Total Time
10 minutes


Yield: 4 servings
  • 4 Rainbow Trout filets, skin on (heads and tails removed)
  • Newman's Own Olive Oil & Vinegar Dressing
  • 6 Lemons (3 sliced thinly)
  • 1 bunch Knob Onions or Scallions sliced diagonally
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • Aluminum Foil


Step 1

Preheat the grill medium-high heat. Place fish filets skin side down on foil. Season with salt & pepper and drizzle with Newman's Own Dressing.

Step 2

Place onions on another piece of foil. Season with salt & pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Seal foil closed so that onions are in a packet.

Step 3

Place both foils on the grill. Cook fish about 5 - 8 minutes, until the flesh is opaque. Cook the onions until they are softened and white parts are browned.

Step 4

Place fish on a serving dish, squeeze three lemons over fish and sprinkle sliced lemons and roasted onions on top.


Think Out of the Ice Box: Try this with another mild white fish such as Orange Roughy, White Fish, or Northern Pike.

*Don't have a grill?? Make it in the oven instead: bake with lemon slices at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes.
