Grilled Rainbow Trout


A camping recipe from Reba. This is our son's favorite camping recipe. He usually eats 2-3 trout at one meal. If we all catch our limit, we usually have other campers who are happy to join us for a meal. Hope you like it.

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes


  • 6 fresh rainbow trout
  • 6 or more slices bacon
  • 1 or 2 large onions, chopped
  • lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 lemon, quartered


Clean the fish by gutting it and cutting off it's head. Wash really well. Pat dry with paper towels. For each fish: Sprinkle insides with seasoning and stuff with onion. Then spray outside of fish with Pam, sprinkle outside of skin with seasonings, and wrap each fish with 1-2 bacon slices, depending on size of fish. Place each fish on a piece of foil that has been sprayed with Pam. Wrap well and place on hot grill for 10-15 minutes or longer, depending on size of fish. You can also place in the coals of fire, but it may cook quicker. When done, open carefully and enjoy. Some fresh slaw or salad and a skillet of fried potatoes really top off this great recipe.
