Trout fishing opened on April 1st. To get up to date information on the fishing, check out the DEC Central NY Fishing Hotline. The weather has been gorgeous and perfect for outdoor grilling. Here is a simple grilled trout recipe.

4 five to six ounce trout fillets
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried dill)
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried parsley)
salt and pepper to taste (about 1/2 teaspoon each)

Mix lemon juice, oil, herbs and seasoning in a shallow baking dish or pie plate. Add the trout fillets to this mixture, being sure to coat both sides of the fish.

Meanwhile light the grill. Oil the grill or grill pan before cooking the fish. Cook the fish about 2 minutes per side over moderate heat, or until opaque. Serve with fresh lemon wedges. Serves 4.
