  • Fish grill pan (optional, but recommended for delicate fish)


  • Vegetable oil, for grill
  • 1 lemon; quartered (leave peel on), divided
  • 2 tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1/3 bunch parsley leaves
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cleaned, deboned trout (skin on); catfish or tilapia filets will also work


  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat; oil grate or grill pan.
  • Place half of cut lemon (peel on), curry paste, parsley, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil in a small food processor or blender. Pulse until a paste forms and lemon and garlic are minced into small bits.
  • Set trout skin-side down on grill pan or directly on grill. Cover flesh with curry-lemon paste; be sure to get in all the crevices.
  • Grill 4 minutes; carefully flip over and grill another 2–3 minutes. Catfish may need 3–4 minutes on second side.
  • Serve with remaining lemon slices.
