Grilled steelhead

Wow I gotta tell ya, the fresh steelhead on the BGE was out of this world. I did a nice rub with paprika, cayan, cluck & squeal, brown sugar. I picked up the SH on the way home, fired up the egg, got the rub on and cooked them hot. The skin was crispy and the SH was mid rare, almost raw on top, but had a beautiful color from the rub. Now I've done salmon and fish many ways, but this was simple and soo tasty. I can't wait for leftovers tomorrow. I think I will make a quick salmon burger with the leftovers!!

    Looks great my friend. Was your steelhead fresh if you dont mind me asking?

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out. 

  • I just shed a tear for that steelhead!  :(( haha looks like you did a great job, I'm sure it tasted great

  • Thanks for the comments, I need to pay more attention to the forum..  The steelhead was fresh, from the farm. 

    I am doing cedar planked salmon tonight, using a spice blend from just cook. When the salmon comes off the egg, I plan on using a goat cheese and dill crumble on top. 

  • I think next day leftovers is the best.
