Rosalia’s Barbequed Fish

Eat Wisconsin Fish / Rosalia’s Barbequed Fish

Time to get creative in the kitchen!

Starter ingredients (quantities are up to you and your taste buds):

Parmesan Cheese
Dried Oregano
Olive Oil
Whitefish or trout


First – make a mixture you think is yummy out of breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and dried oregano. Mix in bowl and set aside. Take your pieces of whitefish or trout and roll them in olive oil. Coat them with the breadcrumb mixture on both sides. Put them on the barbecue. Brown nicely on both sides. Cook for a few minutes on both sides. Overcooking will make the fish dry.
