Campfire Pike

1 Pike (around 1 kg)
3 – 4 tsps of salt
A pinch of pepper
Sprigs of dill and parsley
1 small leek
50g butter


Clean and rinse the pike well, then dry it. Rub the inside of the pike with salt and pepper.
Finely chop the dill, parsley and leek, and mix these with the butter. Fill the pike with this paste and then wrap it in butter smeared greaseproof paper.
Aluminium foil doesn’t work well as the smoke from the fire won’t be able to penetrate the fish.
Wrap the pike just as carefully in newspaper. Wrap it tightly. Then wrap it in the other direction with yet more newspaper and finally tie it together with some string. Lightly dampen the package and lay it on the glowing pile of embers from a campfire
It will soon begin to burn in a slightly alarming fashion, but after 20–25 minutes you can remove the parcel from the fire, lay it on a baking tin or flat surface, and cut open the packaging. The pike will be sitting there firm and white and full of aroma.
