BBQ Fish and Stuffing 

Here is a recipe that was sent to me by Paul Phillips with who said that I could use it. It truly is a great tasting recipe! 

This does a 15 pound Salmon, 10 pound Channel Bass(Redfish), a couple of Bass or Walleye, 15 pound Musky/Pike, 20 pound Red Snapper, etc.

Put the following on low heat and let simmer for 30 or so minutes:

1 pound of BUTTER
1 med. onion diced
3-6 cloves of crushed Garlic
Salt & Pepper (Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning is best)
Tabasco to taste ( put in a minimum of 6 drops ) this is important and you will never know that it is there but you will know if it isn’t
4-6 squirts of Lea & Perrins
juice of 2 or 3 lemons ( I usually slice one and add it also )

Get out the ol’ mixing bowl---put in the following:

2 Green Peppers diced
4 stalks of Celery chopped
3 cans of drained cocktail shrimp ( the real small ones )
3 cans of drained crab meat—yep the real stuff not the imitation
More Tabasco ( 6 drop minimum )
More Lea & Perrins another 4 to 6 squirts
Salt & Pepper – Heavy pepper, light salt ( the crab & shrimp both have salt )
3 cloves of crushed Garlic
1 large Onion diced
One ¼ pound tube of saltine crackers crushed or about a half a loaf of shredded bread
Pour in about half the lemon butter mix

Work the mixture until it is fairly uniform

Thin slice 1 lemon and 1 small onion

Place half the lemon and onion on a large double layer of heavy duty aluminum foil, place the fish on top, stuff the body cavity with the mix, put the rest of the lemon and onion on top the fish. Form the foil into a tray, pour on the lemon butter mix, then try to seal it up. Place on BBQ, close lid, about 10 to 15 minutes a side ( less for smaller fish ), open topside of foil for last ten minutes to add a little smoke taste.

Wrap the smaller fish individually.

Fish should be firm but flake to a fork once the skin is pulled back. You can test it when you open it up for the smoke part.
