Campfire Cooking: Streamside with The Wild Chef

Citrus-Glazed Fish with Worcestershire-Pecan Rice

Chef Danny Trace of Houston devised this killer recipe for Gulf redfish, but any fish benefits from it. Use a sharp chef’s knife to peel the citrus—slice off the ends of each piece of fruit, stand upright on a cut side, and slice away the colored peels and white pith, following the contour of the fruit. Then, use your knife to quarter the fruit, picking out any seeds, or cut between the membranes to release each segment.
