    Steps

    1
    Done

    Put together the ingredients for Orange Fennel Brine in a gallon-size bag (preferably zip-locked); close and shake it until both salt and sugar are totally dissolved (no less than 30 seconds). Split Trout down their bellies; open them up as from both sides to expose the interior to brine. Place the fish in brine, press the air out, close, and put it in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

    In the cavity of each fish, you should Put 2 herb sprigs. Close each fish around herbs. Pat the fish skin so it becomes dry. The next step is to rub the outside of each fish with some olive oil.

    Coat the grill grate with oil. Do the same if you are using a fish basket. Place the fish in a single layer on the grill, the grate, or the grill basket and cover it. You should cook till bacon is cooked through. Fish skin should become crisp (the process takes about 6 minutes per side). Finally, remove toothpicks and serve. Enjoy!
