    2Bleu's Note:

    Although this recipe was created for fresh caught large-mouth bass, any fish fillets will work great. Intended for the campsite, you can cook it on the stove as well. Very adaptable recipe.

      This was very good made with tilapia fish fillets. A bit on the lemony side and I will be very careful with that per the instructions the next time. Thanks, 2Bleu, for an easy recipe that made me feel just like I was camping. Made for PRMR tag game.

      The scent of the garlic slices was so enticing! I used fresh herbs from my garden - parsley, thyme, rosemary, lovage, also a little less butter and a little more wine than called for. I used dry vermouth, my faithful standby for recipes that don't call for a lot of wine when I am not opening a bottle. The herbal notes of the vermouth work really well with recipes such as this. A quick yet impressive dish.
