  • 1 cup/240 mL white wine
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL dry sherry

  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL pepper
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL sea salt

How to Make It

Sauté green onions in olive oil until they start to soften. Add sherry and stir in well. Add spinach and pine nuts. Cook an additional 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Remove from heat and add bread crumbs, milk, and a pinch of salt, pepper to taste, and lemon juice. Mix well. Wash and pat dry the trout. Stuff each trout with 1/4 of the spinach mixture. Tie with kitchen string to secure stuffing.

Set aside. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Combine wine, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper and butter in a pan and simmer for 3-5 minutes. Place trout on the hot grill. Brush often with wine mixture until fish is done (about 20-22 minutes). Once the meat flakes easily and reaches the internal temperature of at least 145 degrees, remove from grill and serve with your favorite side dishes
