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

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.

Camp Recipe: Quinoa & Summer Vegetable Stir Fry Foil Packet

June 18, 2013 in Main Dishes, Side Dish Recipes by amylaree

This time of year I really can’t get enough freshly harvested squash and zucchini… throw in a little red hot chili peppers and it’s a trio that I can’t say no to. When we were prepping our camping menu for our trip to Standing Stone State Park last weekend (more on that later) I decided to try some of my favorite veggies, a few spices and a pile of nutty flavored quinoa in a foil packet to see how it would work as a camp recipe.

The result? Delicious. Try this out as either a vegetarian camp recipe or a side dish on your next outing. It’s packed with the flavors of the season and nutrients to keep your energy high as you hike, boat or simply lounge by the campfire.

Marking My Territory Gear Store

The Right Stuff: New Gear Reviews & Store

We love to hike. We love to camp. We love to eat delicious food by the campfire. These are all great, but one thing they have in common – you gotta have the right gear or things won’t go quite as planned.

That’s why beginning this summer, Marking My Territory is starting a new focus on gear that works for us (and likely for you, too!). We’ll be posting camping and hiking gear reviews and making recommendations based on how well the different equipment performs in real-world settings. Each review will cover the product’s purpose, highlights and drawbacks. We hope that any insights that we can share will help you find the right gear to make your outdoor adventures all the more enjoyable.

As part of this gear-focused initiative, we’ve also partnered with Amazon.com to open the Marking My Territory Gear Store. This store pulls from Amazon.com’s infinite inventory list, but we’ve narrowed down the options to 3 main categories: Camp Cooking, Camping Gear and Hiking. We hope this store will make it easier for you to find the right equipment fo your adventures in the great outdoors.

Let us know if you have any questions or if there’s any specific gear you’d like us to review and be sure to check out our first gear review: The Lodge Logic Dutch Oven.

Thanks!
