Campfire Fish


4 people made this

About this recipe: If you're camping, this is a delicious way to prepare dinner. Whole fish is cooked in the fire in a foil parcel. This recipe calls for trout, but almost any fish will work. If you don't have a campfire, you can do this with your BBQ.


Serves: 4 

  • 4 whole trout, cleaned and head removed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 60g butter, divided
  • 1 medium green pepper, sliced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:7min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  1. Place each trout on a piece of aluminium foil. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stuff each cavity with 1/4 of the butter, green pepper and garlic if using.
  2. Roll the trout tightly in the foil, forming parcels. Use some additional foil to secure each parcel of fish to a metal toasting rod for use as a handle when removing fish from the fire.
  3. Cover the fish parcels in the red hot, smouldering coals of your campfire and cook until the fish is done, 7 to 10 minutes, depending on the heat of the fire.
