Fishing for Compliments

Wow Your Backpacking Buddies with a Fancy Al Fresco Fish Dish

This easy, trail-ready recipe will satiate and wow your band of backpacking pals!

2-4 tbsp olive oil
1 fresh-caught trout 
2-3 packets red wine vinegar
1 lemon
garlic salt
Sriracha powder
packet of crackers

Servings: depends on how hungry you are, how big that trout is, and how good your fishing skills are…

Step 1. Catch your fish. Backcountry fishing requires flies or lures only. Be sure to pack your telescoping rod, reel, and line. No spears allowed!

Step 2. Gut, clean, and descale the fish. I like to fry it in a bit of olive oil (transported in a small, leak-proof container). Alternatively, you could boil the fish or cook it over an open fire using the ponassing method. Once cooked, debone the meat.

Step 3. Season with some red wine vinegar, garlic salt, and a squeeze of lemon. Sprinkle with Sriracha powder.

Step 4. Serve! I like to dish my fish onto some savory crackers. Bon appétrout!
