Cooking in the Wild + Campfire Salmon in Parchment {Recipe Round-Up}

Do you have any summer camping trips planned? We do! 10 days, 1000+ miles, hikes, bike rides, and several state parks are on the agenda. I was looking for some campfire cooking inspiration (click for my invitation).

I thought I'd share one of the easiest fish recipes ever: Campfire Salmon in Parchment. I make this every time we camp...with whatever fish we have. Trout. Salmon. It all works the same way.

Campfire Salmon in Parchment
  • fish filets
  • organic lemon
  • fresh herbs
  • olive oil

Lay a piece of heavy duty foil on the table. Lay a slightly smaller piece of parchment on top of that.

Place your fish piece in the center of the parchment. Lay fresh herbs, roughly chopped, on to of the fish. Place thin lemon slices over the herbs. Drizzle it all with olive oil.

Bring the long sides of the foil together and fold down to seal. Crimp in the ends to create a foil packet. Place the packet over indirect heat on a grill over the fire. 

Cook time depends on the size of your fish and the size of your fire. But a 2-pound fish or filet usually takes between 20 and 30 minutes.

Remove the packet with tongs or oven-mittens. Open foil carefully to release the steam. Serve hot.
