Easy Largemouth Bass Recipe

I’ve already posted an article about getting free food for survival from oceans, but freshwater lakes, rivers, ponds, and streams shouldn’t be overlooked. Many of these waters are teeming with great-tasting fish like bream, catfish, crappie, and largemouth bass, and here in the South, the largemouth bass is king! If you need a largemouth bass recipe, click the link. There’s one posted below, too.
The following largemouth bass recipe is one I came up with several years ago when hubby and I were spending a few days at Lake Blackshear. I got bored one afternoon and decided to flip a plastic worm around some cypress trees next to the bank. I was surprised when I pulled in a largemouth bass that weighed three or four pounds. I decided to cook the fish for our dinner.
We were stating at a friend’s lake house, so I didn’t have my own supply of groceries. There was, however, a large BBQ grill outside – one of the old-fashioned brick numbers. We had brought along some charcoal, and I searched the fridge and cabinets for some appropriate ingredients. This is what I came up with, and it was really good:
Easy Grilled Largemouth Bass recipe
Ingredients:
1 dressed bass
salt
1 cup bottled Italian salad dressing
Grated parmesan cheese
Directions: Clean fish by removing entrails, scales, head, and gills. Salt liberally – inside and out.
Place bass in a shallow dish and cover with Italian dressing. Marinate in the refrigerator for an hour, turning after 30 minutes.
Remove fish from marinade and grill over medium-low heat. Cook both sides, but try to turn as little as possible. When fish is almost done, sprinkle liberally with parmesan cheese and grill five more minutes.
