I prefer my fish cooked on the grill for several reasons.

 

The biggest reason is that it keeps the fish smell out of my house.

 

It is also pretty great to grill as my family can swim while we cook.

 

 

Plus my opinion is that, when cooking a whole fish, it tastes better on the grill than on the stovetop.

 

If you use a whole fish make sure that it is properly treated. Whole Foods gives some great tips on How To Cook A Whole Fish.

Wild salmon provides a stronger nutritional profile and provides a lower risk of contamination than farmed salmon which according to Salmon Aid “requires dumping antibiotics and unnatural food in our waterways.

Salmon is a source of heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids. Salmon also supplies zinc, iron, niacin, and vitamins B6 and B12.

 

The selenium available in salmon is a mineral that can help your thyroid to work properly and is an antioxidant that destroys free radicals. Free radicals are harmful chemicals that your body produces in response to aging and environmental pollutants.

 

The phosphorous in salmon works together with calcium to help develop and maintain strong teeth and bones.

 

Salmon also provides potassium which helps with digestion, your skeletal strength and the beating of your heart.

  • Author: Dr. Elise Ho
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6 1x

Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pounds Trout (may substitute Wild Salmon)
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Mint Leaves, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/4 t. Black Pepper
  • 1 Pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 Bunch Cilantro including stems, chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Garlic minced
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Lemon or Lime Juice

    Sounds yummy, Elise
    I like Trout and make at least ones a week. The whole family likes it. Will try this recipe next time.
    Thank you
    Erika

  3. Well I love the information about salmon, it really is a wonderful fish So good for you. However I really love fresh trout. I used to catch small trout in the ponds and streams of New Brunswick with my Grandfather as a kid. I would not use the Cilantro though – I hate it. Good article!

    Love salmon but not sure about trout and I know my wife does not like it. Still this recipe looks good for salmon and our choice would be Pacific.
