Barbequed Steelhead Trout


"A steelhead is really just a rainbow trout that has been to either one of the Great Lakes or to the ocean for most of its life and has returned to it's birthplace to spawn. This is a twisted way to serve steelhead or any other trout or salmon. It may sound odd, but this is a delicious dish."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Arrange the trout fillets on large piece of aluminum foil. Whisk together the butter, lemon juice, paprika, and cayenne pepper; brush the mixture onto the fillets.
  3. Cook on the preheated grill until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes; brush the fillets with the barbeque sauce; cook another 2 minutes.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I was a bit hesitant to make BBQ fish, but this recipe was absolutely delicious! I didn't have cayenne pepper, so I used ground black pepper and it still came out great. Quick and easy, I will...

Very Good. Instead of aluminum I cooked the fish on one of those mesh screens made specifically for the bbq. Now I can't wait to try bbq sauce on other types of fish.
