Remove from the grill and small dice the apples. In a mixing bowl, combine the apples, trout, and shallots together. Bind the mixture with the cream cheese. Stir in the chives. Season with salt and pepper. Brush each sheet of phyllo with the melted butter. Spread 1/3 of the phyllo with the apple/trout filling.
