So, school is back in, and the craziness that is the school year will now ensue.  My kids started on Monday, and there was a mix of excitement to get back to school and see their friends and find out who was in their class, and sadness that the summer was over.  Summer just goes by way too quickly, and this one seemed to fly by.

I’m exactly the same as my kids.  Part of me is really sad summer is over, but the other part of me is kind of happy to get back to our regular routine, as crazy as it sometimes is.

Since I know that I’m not the only one that finds the school year sometimes a bit crazy, I’ve joined together with some of my friends to bring you a new series starting this week.  This will be a monthly series, called Thirty Minute Thursdays, where you will find lots of new meals that can be made in thirty minutes or less.  And who isn’t looking for those during the busy school year?

This spicy chili garlic grilled trout is fantastic.  I’ve made it several times and we all loved it.  I have some serious fish loving kids (which I’m very thankful for because I love it too!) and it gets gobbled up every time I make it.  This particular recipe is also great because you can easily make it spicy or mild.  I actually make the fillet half spicy so the adults can have the heat and kids will still eat the mild half.

Plus, it literally takes 5 minutes to prep while the grill heats up and then you have 20-25 minutes of cook time where you can completely ignore the fish while you cook some rice and toss together a salad to have with it.  Full meal easily on the table in under 30 minutes.  Perfect for those busy school nights.

If you are like me and looking for some new, quick and easy meals for the school year, look no further!  The links are below for more 30 minute meals from my friends.

Note: I used a steelhead trout fillet with the skin on, but any type of trout would be fine. Also, my kids don’t like their fish spicy, so when I make this I leave the crushed red pepper flakes out of the spice mixture and just sprinkle them onto half of the fish fillet before grilling, so that we have some spicy and some mild.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 pounds (1.1 kg) trout fillet, about one inch thick at the thickest portion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the grill to medium high heat, you want to be cooking at a temperature of 400-450 degrees F. Place the trout fillet, skin side down, on a foil grilling pan. If you don’t have one you could also use a double layer of tin foil.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, garlic, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Spread the mixture all over the trout fillet, coating the entire top of the fish. Place the foil pan on the grill and close the lid. Grill the trout for 20-25 minutes, or until it flakes easily with a fork at the thickest portion.
