My husband is an avid fisherman, so I have the fun of creating recipes featuring his catch. The Tuscan accents here really shine through, making this grilled entree a favorite. —Roxanne Chan, Albany, California

  • 4 pan-dressed trout (about 8 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded zucchini
  • 1/4 cup chopped roasted sweet red peppers
  • 2 tablespoons tapenade or ripe olive bruschetta topping
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 large tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fennel bulb
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning


  1. Rub trout with oil. In a small bowl, combine the zucchini, red peppers, tapenade, parsley, garlic and vinegar; spoon into fish cavities.
  2. Place fish in a well-greased grill basket. Grill, covered, over medium heat until fish is browned on the bottom, 8-10 minutes. Turn; grill until fish flakes easily with a fork, 5-7 minutes longer.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the relish ingredients; serve with trout.
