Smoky Spicy Trout

Smoky Spicy Trout


* Optional Substitution Note
  • 1lb rainbow trout
  • Seasonings:
    • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon (smoked) paprika
    • 1 teaspoon cayenne
    • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
    • zest of lemon (or lime or orange)
    • 1 teaspoon cracked pepper
    • pinch of sea salt
    • pinch of cinnamon (optional instead of using coconut sugar or brown sugar)
  • Garnish
    • fresh lemon juice (or lime or orange)
    • kosher salt & cracked pepper


Step 1

Fire up the smoker/grill to about 200F (or set oven to 300F).

Step 2

Brush the fish with olive oil, then rub it in the seasonings.  Careful not to use all the oil – you’ll need it for basting. If you are going to bake the fish in the oven, then you may want to consider using smoked paprika (or adding a drop or 2 of liquid smoke to the rub) in order to achieve a somewhat smoky flavor that makes this recipe really tasty.

Step 3

Place the fish on a wood plank (the same flavor as the wood you’re smoking). Or, if you’re using the oven, set the fish on a baking tray.

Step 4

Smoke for 2.5 to 3 hours, or bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Brush the fish with the remaining olive oil every 45 minutes.

Step 5

Garnish and enjoy!

About Kevin - author


Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
