The Big Green Egg MiniMax putting in work as I came across some beautiful fresh trout at the fish market yesterday. Seasoned with BGE SPG and also spread chimichurri with some lemon and baby dill in the cavity. About 5 minutes on each side direct and these fishies were done. The white meat was fabulous!

    looks like the skin crisped up well.   some butter fried fiddleheads would go great with that

    you can lead a fish to water but you can not make him drink it

    Beautiful. Curious if the skin is void of scales, does it matter when it's crispy like that, edibility wise?

    The scales on trout are so small that you don’t need to de-scale them.

    my favorite is pan sized fresh caught brook trout,8-12 inches, floured then a pan fry in butter til crispy.  leave the scales on and its done when the tail fin is a crispy chip. i dont buy these farm raised rainbows but i suspect they would cook the same crisp wise, bows taste different than brookies but thats a matter of taste  (farm raised is so much better now compared to when i was younger)

    Seafood, is always a test of wills with me. I am intimidated when using the MMx for all types, except for oysters and shrimp. I will occasionally give salmon, grouper and others a go on the mini.

    Trout, I have not done. Thank you for sharing, and the clue on the timing. Your cook looks delicious, and I will say I was impressed. It is one of the best cooks of freshwater fish utilizing the MMx I have seen in a while.

    outstanding looking forward to more

    @cmac610 @fishlessman Thanks, good to know. We usually steam salmon and trout, PIT* scaling is necessary because we love the skin.

    Thanks…and don’t be intimidated using the MM for seafood. If I’m doing direct cooking, I leave the charcoal a little lower in the firebox as it can get really hot, really fast.
