Alright you newbies, . . . . . there's room for you too. As far as the preparation is concerned, everything is the same . . . music, flowers, wine/beverage candle, etc. Now what I want you to consider is taking a look at some fresh trout or red fish. Make sure one side still has the skin on (scales removed, however). Get you fire relatively hot - 500 degrees or so. When the ashes are white, go melt 1/8 # of butter ( 1/2 stick - not margarine ). Melt the butter and spread on both sides of the fish.
Then sprinkle with basil, thyme and pepper to taste. When everything else is ready, (and after you have had your shower - you do want to be fresh for dinner) place the fish on the grill - skin side up first. That will give it some "grill marks". Turn when done - just a couple of minutes. They will be ready when they flake easily. Enjoy the evening . . . . . .
