This delicious recipe came from a friend her in Mountain Home. The sauce really gives the fish a wonderful flavor. Even those who aren't that fond of fish will like it prepared this way.

  • 2/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 6 pan-dressed trout
  • Lemon wedges, optional


  1. Combine the soy sauce, ketchup, lemon juice, oil and rosemary; pour two-thirds of marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add fish. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate bag for 1 hour, turning once. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Place fish in a single layer in a well-greased hinged wire grill basket. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes or until fish is browned on the bottom. Turn and baste with reserved marinade; grill 5-7 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve with lemon if desired.
