Serves: 5


1 fresh caught, cleaned fish, head on
1 Willow branch, bark removed, or bamboo skewers soaked in water
1 flat rock, not shale, sandstone, slate or wet rock from water (these rocks can explode when heated)
seasoning to taste that you like on fish, or salt and pepper


Build a fire then place a flat rock on the edge of the fire pit, and pre heat the rock. Cut Willow branch or wet bamboo into 3” pieces with a point on both ends. Place the sticks into the belly area of the fish to hold the cavity open. Sprinkle the interior of the cavity with seasoning or salt and pepper.

Place fish on the rock with the cavity facing the fire. Turn fish over onto other side to cook on rock. Continue cooking and turning until fishes head falls off the body. Enjoy!
