Rocky Mtn. Barbecue Trout With Alberta Maple Whiskey Gastrique

We just watched Kevin Brauch making this on Food Network Canada's show "The Thirsty Traveler". He was doing a show in my province of Alberta and they cooked this outside. It looked so good that I had to post it. There was a suggestion for plating before you place the trout on the plate - "In the centre of a large plate, place 5 oz. wild rice pilaf. Arrange 4 seared asparagus on top of rice Place trout on top of rice & asparagus". Enjoy!
