Salmon, Trout, or Steelhead Fillet Recipe

8-inch Dutch oven
8 briquettes on the lid
8 briquettes on the bottom
Baking time: 25-30 minutes

½ teaspoon sea salt
Fresh ground pepper
½ lemon, sliced
¼ cube butter or margarine


Place fillet in oven. Add lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Top evenly with butter or margarine. Add lemon slices on top.

Bake in Dutch oven for 25-30 minutes. Remove lid for the remaining 5 minutes. This helps dry out the fish somewhat, giving it a firmer texture. Serve with wild rice.

Note: This is a simple way to prepare salmon/trout/or steelhead while out camping or on a fishing trip. The fresher the fish, the better the flavor. The lemon juice, butter or margarine, and seasoning adds to the flavor.
