Grain-free Game of Thrones: Tully Trout

June 19th, 2011 at 19:28

Can’t believe the finale of Game of Thrones is already here. This has been the fastest ten weeks ever. Tonight’s meal was grilled bacon-wrapped trout stuffed with lemon and sage, in honor of what I hope will be the debut of Riverrun tonight.

You’ll want one trout per person. Whole trout, butterflied and deboned as much as possible. Head-on if you can, although it’s certainly not necessary. To prepare it, first open it like a book. Brush the inside down with olive oil, then sprinkle it with salt and pepper. Put in some thin lemon slices and sage leaves–I find that four of each will fit pretty well without too much of a struggle.

Close it up and wrap it with bacon, then use toothpicks or small wooden skewers to secure the bacon in place. If you use toothpicks, you may want to pierce it through with a metal skewer and then put the toothpick inside the hole, because the fish skin may be too tough for the toothpicks to withstand.

Grill them on medium-high direct heat for five or six minutes per side. Be careful for flare-ups from the bacon grease dripping on the coals!

Once the bacon is done, so is the trout. We served it with a small green salad.

look I'm eating a face!
