Recipe by Chef Gardoani

This is a simple but tasty way to prepare your fresh catch while out on the trail.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Clean fish thoroughly.
  2. Smear entire fish with Miracle Whip and season with salt, pepper, and dill weed. (Season to taste, it is not necessary to use all of the measurement listed, but I had to satisfy the system.).
  3. Lay each fish on a seperate aluminum foil wrap, and place a couple of lemon slices on top.
  4. Wrap and seal the edges to keep the juices inside.
  5. Place directly on hot coals. You can place the packages on a barbeque grill as well. Just be sure to close the lid while cooking.
  6. Cook unattended until done, about 6 to 8 minutes for trout and grayling. Cook salmon, or larger fish a little longer.
  7. Remove from the coals, brush off the ashes and serve.
