  1. 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  2. 2 tablespoons capers
  3. 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  4. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  5. 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  6. 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  7. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  8. Four 10-ounce boneless rainbow trout, heads and pin bones removed
  1. In a mini food processor, pulse the scallions, capers, parsley, lemon juice, lemon zest and mayonnaise until the scallions are finely chopped. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of the lemon-caper mayonnaise on each side of each trout; season with salt and pepper. Grill the fish over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred and cooked through, 6 minutes. Serve the trout with the remaining mayonnaise.
