Campfire Grilled Trout


I don't know if this recipe is common knowledge or not, It tastes so good it's hard to believe it is so simple. When you go camping and you catch fresh trout this recipe is an absolute must.




6-8 whole cleaned trout

1 cup chopped green onion

1/2 cup of butter or margarine

Salt, pepper, garlic powder to taste

2 tablespoon dehydrated parsley flakes


Clean and rinse the trout well, don't ask me why but if you leave the head and fins on they taste better. Inside the body cavity place 1 tablespoon of butter, a generous amount of chopped onions, and a little salt, pepper, and garlic. On the outside sprinkle with parsley flakes and a little salt and pepper. Double wrap the trout, one to a package in aluminum foil. Place on BBQ grill and cook 7-10 minutes on one side, flip over and cook an additional 5 minutes.

When you are camping always throw some BBQ corn on the grill for an excellent meal compliment, any breads and vegetables work well with BBQ trout. This recipe has always been a must when we go camping. My wife and children are always on the lookout for fish bones when they eat fish, the bones just peel away when you cook the fish this way.

I hope you try this recipe on your next camping trip or backyard BBQ, I am sure you will be pleased with the outcome.
