Few things taste better than freshly cooked fish by the side of a clear mountain lake or stream shortly after the fish have been caught. However, many people simply don’t know how to prepare the fish that they catch, and they therefore miss out on one of most sublime culinary experiences in existence. Following are a few tips and tricks that can make the difference between enjoying a well-crafted meal prepared over a campfire and resorting to the emergency rations in a can that you’ve no doubt packed in case the fish didn’t fry right.
Frying is the most popular was to prepare fish over a campfire. A cast-iron skillet is the best because it’s capable of holding an even, hot heat. Camping supply stores sell cast iron skillets specifically for use with campfires, although if you’ve got a cast iron frying pan at home, it will do just as nicely.
