  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley, plus more for sprinkling

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 whole trout, cleaned
  • 1/4 cup butter, divided
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup blanched slivered almonds
  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Combine flour, paprika, rosemary, garlic powder, parsley, dill, salt, and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Shake bag to mix contents. Place trout into bag, one at a time, seal bag, and shake to thoroughly coat with seasoned flour. Lay each trout onto a large piece of aluminum foil.
