  • About This Recipe

    “I love to camp and fish in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. This is a very easy camp side fish recipe or can be prepared after you get home. You can also adapt this for the oven and for any other type of fish. Add or subtract ingredients for your own tastes. I have also used sunflower seeds and raisins for something different. My family loves this fish over a campfire. Clean up is”

  • “We have prepared this two times. The first was outside on the grill and it was delicious. The second time we were getting ready to grill and the rain started coming down so I baked it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350° F. It was still really good although we prefer it grilled. I did add a bit more melted butter as it seemed a little dry. Thanks for sharing!”
