Smoked Trout With French Lentil Salad

Serves: 4
Total Calories: 603


6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon style mustard
1 teaspoon finely chopped garlic
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 Brook trout, 10 to 12 ounces each, gutted and cleaned, heads removed

1/2 cup French green lentils
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/4 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley

apple wood chips soaked in water for at least 30 minutes
kosher salt
lemon wedges


TO MAKE THE MARINADE/DRESSING: In a medium bowl whisk together the marinade/dressing ingredients.

Place the trout in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour in all but 2 tablespoons of the marinade/dressing (reserve the 2 tablespoons in the bowl). Press the air out of the bag and seal tightly. Turn the bag to distribute the marinade, place in a bowl, and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

TO MAKE THE SALAD: Rinse the lentils under cold running water, then put them in a small saucepan with 2 cups water and the salt. Bring to a boil, then simmer until the lentils are tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain and add the lentils to the reserved marinade/dressing. Add the remaining salad ingredients. Stir and adjust the seasonings, if necessary.

Follow the grill's instructions for using wood chips. Remove the trout from the bag and discard the marinade. Grill the trout over Indirect Medium heat until cooked through, about 15 minutes. Do not turn. Remove from the grill. Cut through the skin and flesh along the backbone and carefully peel off the skin on both sides. Use the knife blade to slide the flesh away from the backbone, leaving the rib bones behind. Remove any bones sticking to the flesh. Season with salt, garnish with lemon wedges, and serve warm or at room temperature with the salad.
