Fitness and nutrition · Aug 6, 2021

Serves 4 / prep time: 10 min / cooking time: 15 min


4 ¾-1lb trout

8 green onions cut in half

8 stalks of fresh coriander

2 cloves of garlic thinly sliced

4 tbsp butter cut into small chunks

1 tbsp seasoning salt or salt and pepper

1 lemon thinly sliced

4 large sheets of heavy duty foil 4 inches longer than the fish on either end


  1. Preheat BBQ on high.

  2. Rinse the fish under cold water and pat dry with a paper towel.

  3. Place aluminum foil paper on a flat surface and spread a small amount of butter across the centre to cover the length of the fish.

  4. Place fish on buttered part of foil and season well both the inside cavity and the outside using either salt and pepper or seasoning salt.

  5. Fill the cavity with 2 green onions, 2 stalks of coriander, a few slices of garlic and the butter. Keep one little piece for the top of the fish and place a couple of slices of lemon.

  6. Fold the foil over the fish to form a parcel, making sure not to create any holes where the flavour might escape.

  7. Repeat with the 3 other fish.

  8. When the grill is ready, place the parcels on the BBQ and grill for approximately 7-8 minutes per side, turning them half way. You can always open them up and make sure they’re done. If the skin comes up easily and the flesh is flaky, the fish is done.

  9. Remove from heat and let sit for a few minutes to cool off a bit.

  10. Enjoy with your favourite healthy side dish.
