I spent a week this past summer in norther Saskachawan on Lake Athabaska with the Dene people. One day for our noon meal they fixed what they call Fire Fish. You first must obtain some fish. We used Northern pike, but any fish will do.Then start a hot fire with dry wood. Gut the fish but don't skin or scale them, leave it on. If the fish are large, cut them in half (a tail on one half and a head on the other)Next cut some green sticks about 3 feet long to put the fish on. Sharpen the stick on one end and insert into the meat next to the spine. Next prop the fish up next to the fire (about a foot or so away) and let it cook until it turns dark brown, then turn and let the other side cook the same. If it burns the skin a little thats alright. The next thing to do is take the fish away from the fire, pull the skin back and eat! This is moist, delicious and quick. No seasoning is required, but a little salt and pepper never hurt anything.
