You can try this recipe for the feast of St. Kateri. It comes from a recipe offered by Lauren McArdle who got it originally from her grandmother in Saskatchewan. You can be as authentic as you want or you can just put it on the grill.


Gut and scale the fish. Place lemon in the fish and rub all over with butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and wrap in a big piece of tinfoil. Bake on a smooth flat rock really close to the fire (but not in it!). Use some long sticks to get it out.

Note: The amount of time it takes to cook varies depending on the size of fish and how close it is to the fire. Just keep checking it, it will be done when the flesh flakes easily with a fork.
