- Fresh Himalayan trout (1 pc.)
- Fresh parsley, chopped
- Fresh dill, chopped
- Lemon zest from 1 lemon
- Fresh lemon juice from 1 lemon
- Olive oil
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Prepare the Marinade:
In a bowl, combine chopped fresh parsley, chopped fresh dill, lemon zest, a drizzle of olive oil, fresh lemon juice, and a pinch of salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix the ingredients well to create a fragrant marinade.
Marinate the Trout:
Lay the Himalayan trout on a plate or in a shallow dish. Spoon the marinade over the whole fish, ensuring it’s evenly coated. Allow the trout to marinate for about 15-20 minutes to infuse the flavors.
Preheat and Grill:
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Make sure the grill grates are clean and lightly oiled.
Grill to Perfection:
Gently place the marinated Himalayan trout on the preheated grill. Grill for about 20-25 minutes on each side, or until the flesh is opaque and easily flakes with a fork. The cooking time will vary based on the thickness of the filet.
Serve with Zest:
Carefully transfer the Grilled Himalayan Trout with Parsley, Dill, and Lemon to a serving platter. Garnish with extra chopped parsley, dill, and a sprinkle of lemon zest for an extra burst of freshness.
