Serves: 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes


  • 3 to 4 pounds lake trout, gutted and scaled
  • Instant chicken stuffing
  • Lemon juice
  • Vegetable oil
  • Tin foil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Make the chicken stuffing according to the package directions.
  2. Clean lake trout by gutting only – leave the head and tail attached.
  3. Lay out your tin foil (double up for thickness). Make sure to use enough foil to cover the trout completely when stuffed.
  4. Lay the trout on the foil and squeeze lemon juice inside the cavity. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Fill trout with stuffing and drizzle 2 tablespoons of oil around the fish, wrap in foil and seal tightly. Place on grill above open flame for approximately 45 minutes.
  6. Remove cooked stuffed trout from foil and unwrap. The skin will remove easily.
