Mesquite Garlic Trout

An easy, delicious gourmet tasting dish, using only 4 ingredients.



  1. Pre-heat oven or outside grill to 450 °F (220 °C).
  2. Cut the head and tail off of a gutted, cleaned trout.
  3. Place the minced garlic inside the open belly of the trout (add more than 4 teaspoons if preferred). Sprinkle mesquite seasoning and salt over the garlic and allow the belly to close naturally.
  4. Place the trout onto a sheet of aluminum foil and wrap the foil loosely over the trout so that it is sealed, but in a tent fashion.
  5. Place in the oven or grill for approximately 20 minutes.
  6. Check to see if the meat flakes. Do not overcook.
