Methods for Cooking Whole Trout

I was gifted with some whole trout. They've been gutted, but have the heads on. They were caught somewhere in Arkansas over the weekend, gutted there and frozen there. I've never cooked whole trout. I know you can bake, pan fry, smoke, grill... What are your favorite recipes for these? Include details. thanks

PP's Louisiana Kitchen has a whole trout recipe that would work well, I'd think. It's seafood stuffed.

I guess them Yankee trout would make a good Trout Meuniere as well.

Maybe...rainbows are a very soft flesh...sure needs to be handled with care. Whole is the way to go.

Can't say I ever caught one. Nor cooked one.

I did chase a few around a stream once up in Virgina.. Had a hard time splaining that to that Game Warden.

They were caught in the Little Missouri River which is stocked with rainbow trout, I believe. I've cooked rainbow trout filets before in the skillet with a thin sliced potato "scales" crust. Very good. Haven't fooled with whole, though.

I just to do that with whole chickens a while ago. They were very tender...like baking in a brine sort of.

re: Methods for Cooking Whole Trout
Anyone ever grill a whole fish? Some of the best fish I've ever had has been multiple times on vacation in Mexico. I don't know if they did anything more than salt & pepper but it was delicious and I've always wanted to try it at home.

Did a 28 inch red several years ago. Stuffed with herbs, lemons, salt and pepper. Very good.

I assume they are rainbow trout?

ETA: Quick google search shows that baking w/ dill and lemon wrapped in foil is the way to go.

Like said above, I would just grill them in a basket. Salt, pepper, fresh lemon juice. You can eat the "cheeks", but there will not be much meat.

Gris, not sure if you do, but if you have the Folse Hook's Lies and Alibis book he has several Rainbow trout recipes in there.

re: Methods for Cooking Whole Trout
I did some googling. Wondering how folks here have cooked them if they have.

Thanks, Mr. Balls. I don't have the book, but I'll check his website. He might have something there.

re: Methods for Cooking Whole Trout
I grilled some whole brown trout a year or so ago. Washed them then dried with paper towel, cut a few slits in the skin, put some fresh lime juice on exterior along with sea salt and black pepper on exterior and interior cavity, and put a few very thin slices of lemon in the cavity, then grilled @ 350-370 on the Primo. They were good and didn't have to bother with a more traditional heavy sauce, brown butter, etc.
