Honey barbecued salmon or trout

deb baldwin


I really do not like the taste of fish, but if you catch it, you got to eat it...
This is really good with a strong oily fish like a Macinaw. I was given this recipe from a fishing quide at Priest Lake, Idaho. This is the best way to impress your fishing buddies.
You can also use almost any large fish like trout and steelhead.

7Remove to a plater and serve.

8The only time that the skin stuck to the grate, was when I was unable to control the heat and it was to hot.
