Limestone Springs Trout Sliders
Limestone Springs Rainbow Trout
Seasoning (if desired)
Potato Rolls (small to medium in size
Preheat grill between 350-400F
Place Rainbow Trout skin side down
If desired lightly season with lemon pepper or a simple fish seasoning
Grill Rainbow Trout skin side down with the lid closed
A simple grilling tip is 7 minutes per inch of Rainbow Trout flesh)
When the entire flesh turns white in color, take a thin grill spatula directly between the skin and the flesh and remove from grill, leaving the skin behind (After Trout has been removed you can peel off the skin from the grill, which makes what we call great trout bacon!)
Place the desired amount of grilled Trout inside a Potato Roll and top with your favorite local cole slaw, serve immediately …. and Enjoy!

1 package mini bell peppers – reds, yellow and orange
8 oz package cream cheese (softened)

¼ cup chopped scallions
Optional ingredients include – hot sauce, hot peppers diced, and finely diced celery and diced peppers from cut off tops
Mix trout, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce, seasoning mix, water chestnuts and scallions in a bowl. Cut each mini pepper so top is off while laying on its side and remove seeds. Fill each pepper with smoked trout spread, then chill before serving. You can make the spread up ahead of time and let set in the refrigerator which enhances the flavor.
