Before looking at a grilled trout recipe, we need to look at the best size for grilling. When grilling a whole fish, the best size is eight to ten inches long. This is the perfect size for a plate and it can be turned easily on the grill. Larger fillets also seem to hold together better during grilling.
Because of its size, trout is the perfect fish for the grill, but its delicate nature causes some people to be afraid of this cooking method. No one likes seeing a nice grilled piece of trout fall through the grate. No one!
You can solve this problem by getting yourself a grilling basket to hold the trout. Problem solved. Or if you do not want to purchase a basket it is not that hard to grill trout directly on the grill.
