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
Ingredients
  • fish filets
  • organic lemon
  • fresh herbs
  • olive oil

Procedure
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.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
