Honey Mustard Grilled Trout, Salad, and Pasta Tuesday

The boys couldn't wait for the grilled food to be done (like always) and they needed to get to bed before midnight, so I served them up some Orzo with tuna, pesto, and basil as well as some edamame with salt. The boys loved it.

For the grilled trout, we made an awesome honey mustard sauce:
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Then put sliced onions on the grill, topped them with the trout, cooked a bit, then added the sauce, and cooked a bit more. The onions helped the fish not stick to the grill... I'm not sure if it gave the fish any taste or not because our trout had a thick skin.

We served this with a strawberry and avocado romaine salad with spicy French dressing. It was quite a yummy combo! Chaz thought the fish was too spicy. Next time we make it, I may lay off on the cayenne a little... just for the boys. And I'll definitely save half of the sauce for dipping later too... it was that good!!
