DIRECTIONS

  • Seafood Alternatives: small salmon, small bluefish, small Arctic char
  • In a medium bowl, combine the cooked rice, lemon juice, olive oil and lemon zest with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Preheat a barbecue grill or preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Thoroughly rinse the fish inside and out and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Spoon the rice mixture into the cavity of each fish.
  • Lay 6 grape leaves in a rectangle on the work surface, slightly overlapping so there are no large gaps.
  • Set one of the trout on top and wrap the leaves up and over the fish.
  • Lay another leaf or two on top of the fish if necessary to fully enclose it.
  • If grilling, tie a few pieces of kitchen string around the fish to secure. Repeat with the second fish.
  • Brush the grill with oil and cook until the fish is just opaque through (make a small slit through the leaves to check), 4 to 6 minutes on each side.
  • Alternatively, put the fish in an oiled baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes.
  • Discard the strings and serve.
