This incredible salmon dinner is ridiculously simple to prepare! With just a handful of ingredients, you can whip up a satisfying meal that’s a step up from your average campfire fare. Follow these easy steps for success:
Pickup two fresh salmon fillets from your local market or deli Season generously with pepper and salt Use heavy-duty foil to line your grill rack Rather than forming a foil packet, cook salmon openly on a castiron skillet over the fire Flip halfway through to cook evenly on both sides
I always opt for fresh salmon filets because they have a richer flavor than previously frozen fish and the texture works much better for campfire cooking. Previously frozen salmon tend to be thin and burn easily.
I love how the campfire does all the work, infusing the salmon with a delicious smoky flavor. Depending on how lightly I pack for our camping outing, I may serve the blackened salmon with a simple salad or if I pack my camp stove, I make a quick box of pasta to pair with it.
Bottom line: this salmon recipe yields maximum flavor with minimal effort! Pairing options are endless!
