Tired of eating the same food at camp over and over again? Try cooking fish over your fire; it is easier to cook but is just as satisfying (even more when fresh). Most of all, it gives you a break from your usual menu of meat and eggs for breakfast. Fish is much healthier too! So next time you go camping or fishing, be sure to try any of these campfire fish recipes:

Camp Style Fish Tacos

What do you need:

For the fish:

  • 6 tortillas

  • 2 snapper fillets

  • 1/2 lime

  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin

  • Hot sauce, for serving (optional)

  • French fries, for serving (optional)

For the corn sauce:

  • 2 ears of corn on the cob

  • 1/2 lime

  • 1/2 red onion, chopped

  • 1 jalapeño

  • A handful of chopped fresh cilantro

  • Salt to taste

Light your grill or campfire. When over medium heat, place the corn and jalapeño on a grill and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.

Place the fish pieces on a plate. Squeeze 1/2 a lime and drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over the fillets, then coat all sides with chili powder, salt, and cumin. Place prepared steaks in a wire grill basket and cook 3 minutes per side or until cooked through. Remove from heat and set aside.

To prepare the sauce, remove the corn cob and place it in a bowl. Chop the jalapeño (remove the blackened parts) and add it to the bowl. Mix together the onion, cilantro, the juice of 1/2 lime, and the salt.

Arrange the tacos by placing the fish and sauce inside the tortillas. Serve with French fries and season with hot sauce if desired.

Campfire Lemon Pepper Salmon

What do you need:

  • 1 kg. salmon fillet

  • 2 lemons, sliced

  • 3 tablespoons of butter

  • Kosher salt, to taste

  • Black pepper to taste

  • Parsley, for garnish

Use cold water to rinse the salmon fillet then pat dry with paper towels. Line a heavy-duty aluminum foil baking sheet with lemon wedges. Place the butter in the middle of the pan followed by the salmon, skin side down over the lemons.

Sprinkle the steak with kosher salt and black pepper and then cover the pan with aluminum foil. Place the skillet over a fire pit or a preheated grill. Cook for 18-20 minutes over medium high heat until cooked through and fish flakes easily.

When ready, remove the foil lid, garnish with parsley, and serve.
