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

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.
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.

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.
