How to Make It

Step 1

At home: Put cornmeal, flour, salt, and pepper in a 1-gallon zip-lock plastic food bag. Pack bacon drippings in a small, widemouthed Nalgene jar (see notes). Transport in an insulated chest.

Step 2

In camp: Gut fish. If desired, or for fit in pan, cut off heads and tails. Rinse fish well.

Step 3

Put fish in the plastic bag with the cornmeal mixture and shake to coat.

Step 4

Put bacon drippings in a nonstick 10- to 12-inch frying pan over medium heat. When hot, add fish to pan without crowding. Brown well and cook just until thickest part flakes easily when prodded to the bone, about 5 minutes per side, depending on size. If desired, serve bacon with fish.
