Quick to make and tasted great. I've made it twice, the second time I used more lemon zest and it was much nicer, tasted really tangy. Will definitely be making this again.

My husband had never had trout before so I made this recipe and he LOVED it. Big hit.

Delicious! I didn't add butter or oil so it's much lower in calories and fat. I just sprinkled the breadcrumb/parsley/pinenue mix on top and baked them and it formed a nice crust.

Really, really enjoyed this. My boyfriend thought that it would detract from the taste of the trout, but he loved it too.

I followed these instructions exactly, delicious.

A thicker piece of trout will take longer than five minutes cooking. The 4lbs 7oz fish i used was uncooked at its thickest part after 10 minutes cooking. It had to go back to the grill for 5-10 mins at a lower heat. Then it was cooked and scrummy.

Very easy and extremely tasty. Will try again perhaps swapping the parsley for other herbs as mentioned above. We had chunky trout filets so I grilled them for an extra couple of mins before adding the topping. Definitely recommended!
