Whole Grilled Bass Fish Recipe | Cooking on the Weber Q Grill | Camping Food

Hi I’m Blaine with, and today
we are going to catch some fish and grill them up on the Weber Q. Got a nice mud cat here, they are fun to catch,
but the fish I like best on the grill are Brim and Bass. I’ll throw this one in the ice chest. Now that we have a few fish for the grill,
i’ll see what I can catch on cut bait. This right here is one of my favorite fish
to catch for sport, this is a Bowfin, or as it is called locally, a Choupique. These fish can breath in the water or on land. They bite down like a bear trap, so make sure
to be careful when handling them. Now this one is a fighter! It looks to be around 25 inches long, this
is a really nice fish! Now that we got some fish, let’s fire up
the grill! Since I’m grilling the brim and bass whole,
I’ll start by scaling them. If you don’t have a fish scaler, a spoon
like I’m using today works just fine. Just work your way from the tail to the head
of the fish, and give them a dunk in some water to clean them up. Now since the brim are small, it’s best
to remove the head to make gutting them easier. For the bass, make a small incision under
the gills, then make a cut down the belly & remove the guts. Now for the stuffing, I’ll slice some fresh
lime and lemon. Leaving the lemon and lime peel on will let
all those flavorful oils infuse in the fish while they grill. For a spicy kick, I’ll slice some jalapenos
to throw in the mix as well. Next, I’ll make some compound butter, starting
with a few cloves of chopped garlic… and some chopped parsley for a fresh kick. I’ll throw in about half of the bunch. Now just dice up some room temperature butter,
and add it to the mix. Season to taste with your favorite creole
seasoning blend… and mix everything to incorporate. I want all of these flavors to infuse into
the fish from the outside too, so I’ll score the outside of the fish too before coating
with the compound butter. Coat the cavity of the fish with some compound
butter, and stuff it with the sliced lemon, jalapeno & limes. Coat the outside of your fish with a generous
amount of the compound butter & it’s time to hit the grill. I have my Weber Q preheated for medium high
heat, and I seasoned the cooking grids with some coconut oil to keep the fish from sticking. Alright, I’ll let the fish grill with the
lid closed for about 3 minutes, then the brim should be ready to flip a couple minutes before
the bass. These are grilling up nice, I’ll go ahead
and flip the bass… beautiful! After about 5 minutes on the second side,
it’s time to get these guys off the grill. There is nothing better than fresh fish on
the grill, and remember… at we smoke.. the competition!

  1. Absolutely wonderful video and very informative for those of us without fish grilling experience. The fish look so delicious, I'm ready to catch and grill!

  2. Oh MAn this Guy smokes 'em just as good as tony! Tony better get back quick before he snatches his channel away

  3. You kept saying brim and i was really confused until i realized that was what you guys call blugill, interesting how different regions call things, here in michigan we call bowfin "dogfish"

  4. My first time grilling fish, I usually bake or broil. I followed your recipe and it was delicious. Thanks a lot

  5. I grill fresh water and salt water fish but I use a charcoal grill instead of propane, the charcoal adds flavor and you could aslo throw in some hickory chips for a nice smokey flavor.
