Cooking Your Fish in Mud
Mud baking is a time-honored, yet almost forgotten way to prepare food in the wild. One of the greatest advantages to using this method is that you don’t need a grill, plate, skewer or any other cooking implement to prepare a fish. All you need is a bed of hot embers and soot, some mud or clay and a fish that has been gutted. Some people may suggest that you remove the scales form the fish prior to cooking in the wild, but it is better to leave them on for this particular method.
