Grilled Steelhead Trout

Sharing is caring!

Just came up with this recipe this weekend. It’s pretty basic but delicious.


  • 1 lemon, sliced into thin rounds with the ends reserved
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 ½ teaspoons minced onion
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 filet steelhead trout


Lightly oil the grate of your grill. Arrange lemon slices on the grate so they overlap slightly and form a shape slightly larger than your trout fillet.

Preheat grill for medium heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium-high heat.

Saute garlic and onion in the hot oil until the garlic browns slightly, 2 to 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Squeeze the reserved lemon ends over the garlic mixture.

Gently lay the trout fillet onto the lemons with the skin side down. Brush the garlic mixture over the top of the fish.

Cook trout on hot grill until the fish flesh flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.
