Whole Trout

A kind soul recently gave me a fresh-caught and stunningly gorgeous whole rainbow trout. It's huge. Like 4.5-5 lbs huge. I want to do something with it this weekend and would welcome suggestions for preparing it in a way that would leave it whole.

I was also lucky to be gifted with some freshly caught trout this summer. Although not as big as yours, my favorite thing I did to them was rub all over with salt and pepper, Line the insides with thinly sliced lemon and lay a couple of julienned scallions in, too, along with a sprig of fresh tarragon. Drizzle with good olive oil before and after roasting for 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees F.

@ Pierino - nice catch! (pun intended.) You should definitely cook it soon! Remember fresh fish (and visitors) stink after 3 days!

It was frozen immediately after being caught and dressed. These are all really great ideas and I've got a few days before the weekend (sniff sniff), so keep the posibilities coming!
