Here is the recipe you asked about. My buddy just sent me the recipe we tried with Idaho mountain trout steaks! It works great in the backwoods, as all you need is the seasoning that you pre-mix, a pot and water. You'll probably want to smoke some of the fish you catch on the campfire, but this is a nice change of pace, tasty, and simple.[p]
Recipe from LipSmackin' Backpackin' by Tim and Christine Conners, Three
Forks Books, Helena, Montana, 2000[p]Ingredients:[p]1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried ground sage
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Any herb or spice that pleases your palate (optional)
1 vegetable bouillon cube
2 fresh-caught, medium-size trout, gutted, well cleaned, with skin on
Water[p]Weight of spices: less than 1 ounce
Total servings: 2[p]At Home:
Mix the herbs together in a bag[p]On the trail:
Add seasoning mix and bouillon cube to a pan of water (ideally about the size of a large coffee can). Bring the water nearly to a boil so that the bouillon cube is dissolved and the liquid is an aromatic weak herb broth.[p]Add trout and cover with water. (You may have to cut larger fish in half to fit into most backpack cook pots.) (OR CUT IN STEAKS LIKE WE DID IN IDAHO). When water returns to near boiling, cover pan and allow fish to simmer on low heat for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and poach for 10 minutes until flesh is firm (white or light pink, depending on the species) and cooked through to the backbone. Trout is done when the filets on each side can be stripped off the bones easily. Strip off and discard the fins and their short bones. The skin is good to eat, but some folks prefer not to eat it.[p]Hope that helps you enjoy this Alaska trip of a lifetime you have planned![p]NB
