Grilled trout with green asparagus and roasted potatos

Been some time for me to make a new post here, but it’s that time again, fortunately. I had a nice workout on Stand Up Paddling yesterday, and wanted to enjoy the good weather a little more, so I fired up the old OTP again. Bought some fresh rainbow trouts and was feeling confident. Trout is usually one of my favorites, eventhough there are often a lot of fishbones that stuck to the meat and end up in my mouth, but …. it doesn’t affect taste, and that’s good!

Ingredients

  • 2 fresh rainbow trouts
  • 500 grams (1 pound) of precooked little potatoes
  • 500 grams of green asparagus
  • fresh dille
  • about 50-75 ml of extra vergine olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper to taste.

First the preparation.

Take 2 teaspoons of chopped dille and add the 75 ml of olive oil. Add a nice bit of salt and a little pepper and mix well into a nice marinade.

So after mixing it well, just add about 2 tablespoons of this marinade to the asparagus and to the potatoes as well, and mix it through.

Now start with the trouts. They were bought cleaned, so I just washed them out a little with fresh water and dried the skin with a towel. Now I’ve cutted into the sides a few times with a large kitchen knife and added salt and pepper to both sides and the inside as well.

After salting and peppering it, I’ve added 2-3 slices of lemon and a few branches of dille in there, before putting it into my fish grate for the BBQ.

Now, I’ve prepared everything I need, I just need to fire up the Q and pre-heat the oven on about 50 degrees celcius. (you’ll know why later on)

I’ve used a grill pan over direct coals to grill the potatoes in about 20 minutes, while turning them over every 5-10 minutes, giving them a nice grill mark style cook, and did the same with the asparagus, except a lot shorter, of course.

The trout only needs about 5-6 minutes per side, but while doing that, I’ve kept the potatoes and asparagus warm in the pre-heated oven. (told you I’d explain later 😉 )

Served and ready to be enjoyed!

Valentine’s day BBQ diner

Saturday it was the 14th of February, and as you all know, that’s a beautiful day for people in love. Although we never ever join in into this extremely commercial festivity, it is a day to contemplate the love we have for eachother. Since I like BBQ and my wife has to cook every day, my love is expressed using the tools at hand, knowing a kitchen, some knifes, ingredients and a grill outside.
