Brushing the trout with this lemon and caper mayonnaise sauce prior to grilling keeps the fish moist and adds considerable flavor.


  • 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 10-ounce boneless rainbow trout, heads and pin bones removed


  1. Preheat your grill or grill pan on high heat.
  2. Place the scallions, capers, parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest, mayonnaise and a few pinches of salt and pepper into a food processor. Blend the mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of the mayonnaise mixture onto both sides of the trout and then grill for 3 minutes on each side. Serve immediately with the remaining mayonnaise.
