Ingredients

  • 2 (1 to 2 pound) whole trout, cleaned and gutted with heads, tails and fins removed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Special equipment: 2 untreated cedar or alder planks, 3/4-inch thick and 12 to 15 inches long

Place the planks into cool water and allow to soak for at least 2 hours and up to overnight.

Preheat the grill to 375 to 400 degrees F.
