Cooked something new - Trout in Grape Leaves

Hi all,

Here's another new recipe we recently tried. My wife came home from the supermarket with some great fresh trout filets, and we weren't really sure what to do with them. After a bit of pondering, we came up with this. More details and pictures posted to our blog at


To make this, I laid out an overlapping row of grape leaves lengthwise, a bit longer that the fish. I then put the fish over the leaves, sprinkled with salt and grains of paradise (you could also sub black pepper for this), topped with sliced lemon rounds, then folded the grape leaves over, and added more to the top to fully over. I brushed the outside of the grape leaf packet with olive oil and cooked direct at 450 dome temp for about 4 minutes per side. I used a wide spatula and my tongs to carefully flip them over, and they held together pretty well. Came out really good.

    In another life I was in the Philippines and I noticed that a number of dishes were cooked in banana leaves. They looked and smelled delicious but we were prohibited from eating local foods so I didn't get to sample them. Since becoming an Egghead I've often wondered if I could duplicate those flavors on the Egg. I have banana trees so the rest should be easy.

    I was going to say the same thing as Chicken. That reminds me of the cooks in the tropics wrapped in some form of leaf. Keeps it from burning AND adds flavor. Great job. ;) I like some'en differant.
