I would like to know the best recipes you have used. thank you
I wrap trout in aluminum foil with some butter, garlic and salt. Simple and delicious
Baked, simple way to fix fish on a campfire, gut (leave head on and do not skin), pack mud around fish and toss in fire. When mud is hard, fish is done. We use to do this all the time as a kid, we would be fishing at night and get hungry!
I just wrap salmon filets in tin foil with lemon slices and throw in the fire.
Deep fried in beer batter:
Combine flour and pepper in a large bowl.
Slowly pour in beer, whisking constantly until smooth.
Served with double fried chips (As in thick cut fries, to Americans), mushy peas and tartar sauce.
I use this recipe on bass and stripers, excellent if you like baked fish
Scale fish and filet (leave skin on)
Squeeze lemon juice over fillets
Layer fish with 1/4 inch Mayonaise
Salt and Pepper
Bake at 350 (this is usually when the Mayo starts to turn brown).
This recipe works on trout, crappie, perch, bass and catfish.
Depending on the amount of fish I am frying (last fish fry 30 lbs of fillets) is how much I use. You will have to but here is how I mix it, you can add or subtract to get the flavor you want.
Add about a 2 cups buttermilk, hot sauce and the eggs in a large bowl and beat. Add corn meal, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayanne pepper into large bowl and mix with hands.
In deep fry pan add oil and get to a rolling boil, and add about 12 whole canned japaleno peppers (these will be left in until the last piece of fish is fried. Dont worry about them becoming black, and do no discard they are good eating.)
Roll fish in milk batter and roll in cornmeal. Add to hot oil.
A lot of people over cook fish, when it floats it is done!
for my own favorite and I promise you it's good survival food camping is usually the Beer fried fish fillets.
1 pound of fish fillets, 1/2 pound per person, serves two 1 cup buttermilk pancake mix 1 cup beer 1 cup flour 1/4 cup cooking oil.
- First step is to open the beer and take a sip. We want the Oil to be nice and hot right when we have finished preparing our Fish Fillets, so we should heat that up now. Nice job! Take another sip of beer! We need our Fish Fillets to be cleaned and dried. You COULD buy these Fish Fillets from a store, but hopefully you caught, skinned, cleaned, de-boned, and dried them yourself (because I can't do that). Anyway, take your Fish Fillets and dredge them in the Flour. We want just an even coating of flour all over the fish. Take another sip. Now we want to mix the Pancake mix and about ¾ Cup of beer together. The rest of the beer is for you. Mix it with a fork until it is smooth. Now we want to take our floured Fish Fillets and dip them in the Batter. Again, we want an even coating. Put these Fish Fillets into the oil and cook until the outside is Golden, Brown, and Delicious. Once the outside is done the inside should be nice, moist, and shiny. Only cook two at a time as over crowding the pan when frying is a big No-No. Once they are all done (and you ate the first Lightly Fried Fish Fillet just to make sure it was done and then finished the beer) let them drain a little bit on a paper towel. After that you can sprinkle a little dill, pepper, or lemon on them, but that's not really needed. They are pretty perfect just the way they are.
What oil do you prefer using? BTW I am planning a catch and cook video on my second channel this weekend.
