Grilled Rainbow Trout Review by scrfoto on October 29th, 2011:

I wasn't wild about the amount of oil this recipe has but it has much potential with some slight modifications. Use less oil, add the mix inside the trout and cover with aluminum foil. That's my modification to this :) It was good, just need a bit more inside taste than outside crunch.

Grilled Rainbow Trout Review by Sue on January 13th, 2012:

Lime makes it too bitter, I added sherry which did improve it but the bitterness was still there. I wouldn't do it again.

I really liked this recipe. I used all the same ingredients, but used my own judgments on the amount.
