When we head out camping for a few days, I usually stick to easy to prepare meals and snacks – sandwiches, fruit and veggies, etc. But I like to do up one nice tasty meal and while we were on our first camping trip to Ross Lake, I made some seriously delicious campfire salmon.
It only took a few ingredients and about 10 minutes, and since we went without a bbq or portable stove, I cooked it right on the grate of the campfire. My cast iron frying pan (and silicone oven mit for safe, easy removal) were perfect for cooking up this tasty dish.
I melted butter in the bottom of the pan and added my salmon fillet, sprinkled with seasoning I brought from home (salt, pepper, garlic salt and parsley portioned into a small bag) and covered with tin foil to keep any ashes out and to help steam the fish. Cooking time will depend on how roaring your fire is, but mine was done in about 10 minutes.
It was so delicious! Even the girls ate some and loved it (although I was quite happy to finish their leftovers!). This is now one of my favorite meals for camping, and veggies or a salad on the side make a great addition!
