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!
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.
Summer is the perfect time to work a little Hawaiian flavor into your meal – even when you’re camping. This foil packet recipe one-ups the standard Hawaiian ham & pineapple combo by working in sweet potatoes, bell peppers and some spicy red pepper flakes to balance out the flavors and fill up your belly.
Without a doubt, this ranks in my top 5 favorite camp recipes we’ve done for Marking My Territory. Try it out and let us know what you think!
When Nate first took me camping, this is the recipe he used to get me excited about cooking in the outdoors. This foil packet camp recipe is a breeze to throw together and just by tossing it on the campfire, you wind up with a gourmet-style meal. Dried rosemary can be used, but fresh is certainly best.
Give it a whirl at your next camp outing and let us know what you think!
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.
