Camping Recipe: Asian Salmon Foil Packet

June 25, 2013 in Main Dishes by amylaree

Even if you don’t fish when we’re camping, that doesn’t mean that you should just have to be stuck with meat and potatoes on the campfire. With inspiration from our friends at All Recipes, we took this recipe and modified it for the campfire. Be sure when you’re selecting your salmon for this camping recipe, to pick a filet that still has the skin on – this will make it less likely that the good stuff will get stuck on the foil packet!

Camping Recipe: Asian Salmon Foil Packet


  • 1 Salmon Filet (appx. 1/2 lb)
  • 1 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Water
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Teaspoon Lemon Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste


  1. Make a large double-layer of foil. Spray with non-stick cooking spray to keep salmon from sticking.
  2. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, water and olive oil until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Place salmon on the foil. Turn up edges of foil to make a reservoir to hold salmon and soy sauce marinade. Pour soy sauce mixture over salmon.
  4. Sprinkle with garlic powder, lemon pepper, salt and black pepper until well coated.
  5. Wrap and seal the aluminum foil. Leave room in the packet to allow air to flow through as it cooks.
  6. Cook on hot coals for 20 minutes, flip about half-way through.
  7. Open with caution – there will be lots of steam.
  8. Dish out and enjoy! This goes great with our Quinoa and Summer Vegetable Stir Fry.
