Cook Fish on the Trail…Using a Rock [VIDEO]

Be the best trail recipe connoisseur and don’t even use a pan. Cook your fresh-caught fish on a rock!

Trail Chef from “Backpacker” magazine shows us how to cook a fish on a rock.

Here is Trail Chef’s Southwest marinade recipe:

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

2 Tbsp. olive oil

Now, go catch your fish in a near-by stream, spice your fillet, find a nice flat rock and put it in the middle of a bed of hot coals. Cook the fish for five to seven minutes, until it is flaky.

Sit back and enjoy while relishing in your amazing self-sufficiency as the guy or gal who can cook on the trail. Ah, doesn’t it feel good to shed modern technology like cookware?
