The ultimate camp fire recipe. Nothing like sitting around a camp fire enjoying fresh caught trout with your friends with this simple, super quick, absolutely awesome campfire trout.
2 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped into wheels
2 whole carrots, steamed in advance and cut into half inch chunks (or you could use 8 or so baby carrots)
6 mushroom caps (whatever kind you like)
1 trout, gutted and whole (season with salt and pepper)
1 large spoonful Rotel
1 jalapeno (use half and remove seeds for mild or use whole and keep seeds for hot)
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper
Start by laying out tinfoil that you will eventually make into a pouch to hold your ingredients. Arrange your ingredients in layers: butter, onion wheels, carrots chunks, mushroom caps, whole fish, Rotel, jalapeno. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, drizzle the olive oil over all ingredients and fold up the foil.
Place the tinfoil pouch on the hot coals and cook for about 15 minutes. Carefully remove the tinfoil package and enjoy all the flavors as they melt together.
