- Salt and pepper (to season)
- 1 whole lemon
- 2 whole bass or any preferred mountain fish
- 4 basil leaves
- 4 cups of cedar chips
- 2 cups of cooked rice
Fry or grill fish, if you are in the mountains, dig a hole, about 1 foot deep,
Find a handful of small branches about 1 ft. Long each and some leaves, place leaves and branches in hole.
Find a good smelling tree or preferable a cedar and chip off A LOT of chunks to make about 3-4 cups full. Mix up the chunks with the mulch.
Make a rack out of some branches
Place the fish whole in between racks. One on each side holding it. Every 3 minutes rotate the rack once you light the mulch in the hole.
When the fish is cooked place the fish on separate plates, squeeze half the lemon on each one to give them that wonderful, full, fresh, taste, it also takes the nasty fishy flavor away from it,
Season it with the salt, pepper, and sprinkle ripped up basil leaves on top. ENJOY! This is by far my FAVORITE outside dish!
