Grilled Trout Almondine with Radicchio and Orange-Almond Vinaigrette

Trout grills up quickly (it only needs about 3 minutes per side) which leaves you plenty of time to fix up something to serve alongside. Bobby keeps it simple by grilling some radicchio and dressing everything with a sweet-and-tangy orange vinaigrette.

  • 2 oranges, halved
  • 2 heads radicchio, halved
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped toasted blanched almonds
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley, plus whole leaves, for garnish
  • 1 teaspoon clover honey
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Four 6-ounce skin-on rainbow trout fillets, about 1/2 inch thick
  • Canola oil, for brushing


  1. Heat a charcoal or gas grill to high for direct grilling. Brush the cut sides of the oranges and radicchio with some olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Put the oranges and radicchio cut-side down on the grill and cook just until charred and slightly softened. Transfer the radicchio to a platter.
  2. Squeeze the orange juice into a bowl and whisk in the almonds, vinegar, parsley, honey, mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until emulsified. Let sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes before serving.
  3. Brush the trout fillets with canola oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill until golden brown and slightly charred on both sides and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side. Remove to the platter with the radicchio and immediately drizzle with the vinaigrette. Garnish with parsley leaves.
