Thought I would share a wonderful meal from camping at Yellow River.  Fresh trout caught and eaten the same day with fried potatoes and summer squash, tomatoes, onions and zucchini.  Staci says she thinks it is the best meal she ever ate.  I'm inclined to agree with her.  My grandson's caught the trout and Staci, Eddie and I prepared the meal and we all ate it together filling it with much love and adding to the whole eating experience.  It could not get any better than that.  We are looking forward to going up again this summer.  I can't wait for the fresh trout.  I even got me a trout stamp on my fishing license already.

Keep it simple (are you getting tired of hearing that yet?) and take the old cast iron skillet with you.

Sawyer and Sal with catch of the day.  Sal didn't catch any and it broke his heart.  This year he will.

Grilled Trout

Olive oil
Garlic cloves
Black pepper
Grated lemon

Mix together the olive oil and garlic. Spread evenly on the inside and outside of the fish. Add oil to a heated cast iron skillet on the preheated grill.  Sprinkle fish with lemon, salt and pepper and grill for 4-5 minutes on each side over a medium heat. Do not turn over or move until done or it will stick to the grill. 

Variations:  You can add other seasoning depending on how much you want to pack.  Try stuffing the trout with some rosemary, basil, lemon and/or parsley on the inside.

Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  Good fishing.

Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
