Sometimes a hungry soul is just yearning for simple, flavorful ingredients to fill up on. This grilled orange and herb trout recipe starts with trout filets, skin-on, that are dusted in salt and pepper. The fish is otherwise left in its natural state, no added flavors. Acting as a blank canvas, the minimally seasoned fish filets allow for bold flavors to be brushed on before grilling.

Fresh sprigs of herbs pack in multiplying levels of flavor when combined. I used tarragon, dill, and parsley for this particular recipe, but the beauty of this dish is almost any fresh herb can be added to the bundle. Rosemary, sage, thyme, and marjoram are just a few that come to mind. The same can be said for the citrus in the dish. I used orange because I wanted to a little sweet flavor to balance against the dill and tarragon, but lemon or grapefruit would be a perfect substitution for this meal as well.
