Dutch Oven Bread Fish Bake

Perfect after a long day fishing this Bread Fish Bake uses stale bread and delicate seasonings to cook any white fish in a Dutch oven.

The mild seasonings of parsley and garlic are there to complement rather than overpower the delicate flavor of a white fish. These flavors and the cooking style are influenced by a dish in Italy known as Fish Grate’ or Gratinato.

Stale bread is a common problem camping after a day or so, making this dish a useful recipe for it rather than throwing away. The dish is even more satisfying if you caught the fish yourself.

Ingredients

5 cups stale bread

2 cloves garlic, finely diced

3 sprigs curly parsley, finely chopped

2 pounds (1kg) white fish

salt and pepper, to taste

1/2 cup olive oil

3 tablespoons (45g) butter

Equipment

large bowl

12 inch Dutch oven

Recipe Directions

  1. Break the stale bread down into small pieces and place in a bowl.

  2. Add to the bread the diced garlic and parsley, then mix until well combined.

  3. In a Dutch oven preheated to about 350 degrees F (180 degrees C), add half the bread mixture and flattern.

  4. Place the fish on top of the bread then season with salt and pepper.

  5. Place the remaining bread mixture on the top of the fish. 

  6. Drizzle with olive oil and add small cubes of butter across the top of the bread mixture.

  7. Return the Dutch oven to a 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) heat for 45 minutes.

  8. After 45 minutes check that the fish is cooked through and flaking. If cooked serve, if not return to cook until done.
