My dad taught me how to prepare the trout we caught fresh on camping trips when I was a kid. I always loved the buttery flavor and melt-in-your-mouth texture!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place each trout on a piece of aluminum foil. Season to taste with salt and pepper, then stuff the cavity with 1 tablespoon of butter, green pepper and garlic if using.

  • Roll the trout tightly in the foil, forming packets. Use some additional foil to secure each packet of fish to a metal toasting rod for use as a handle when removing fish from the coals.

  • Cover the fish packets in the red hot, smoldering coals of your campfire and cook until the fish is done, 7 to 10 minutes, depending on the heat of the fire.

Made this with trout my husband caught up in AR couple of weeks ago. It was good. A little boring for me but still easy and came out very flaky and tender. My husband thought it was good too. Read More

I have cooked trout this way for years. However I use stuffing mix (stovetop our similar) to fill the fish. Works easily with campfire our on grill. I also place thin sliced butter between foul and fish inn each side. The fish skin will peel right off with the foil when you open it and leaves a moist flavorful trout with it's own side dish. Perfect when camping and fresh caught trout. Read More

I ve made this recipe a number of times with a couple of substitutions for ingredients. Instead of bell pepper I use fresh sliced jalapeño peppers and I ll also slice lemon to put inside the cavity wrap them in aluminum foil and put them directly on the coals. Read More
