GRILLED STEELHEAD TROUT


Steelhead trout is similar to salmon in its color and texture and is a great choice to cook on your Big Green Egg. The convection heat that radiates within the dome caramelizes the fish nicely and the fennel gives it a fresh, sweet, licorice flavor.

  • 1 meyer lemon (cut in half at equator)
  • 2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp wild fennel pollen
  • 1tsp ground espelette pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 bunch fennel fronds and stems

Method

  2. Squeeze one side of the lemon onto the two filets.
  3. Season the filets with salt, fennel pollen, and espelette pepper.
  4. Drizzle the olive oil over the filets and gently massage to work into the flesh.
