So the next time you’re 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 nets
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • Hot sauce, for serving (optional)
  • French fries, to serve (optional)

For the corn sauce:

  • 2 ears of corn on the cob
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno
  • a handful of fresh coriander, chopped
  • Salt to taste

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

Arrange the fish pieces on a plate. Squeeze 1/2 lime and drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil over 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 from the cob and place it in a bowl. Chop the jalapeño (remove the blackened parts) and add to the bowl. Mix onion, cilantro, juice of 1/2 lemon and 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 kilogram. salmon fillet
  • 2 lemons, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste
  • Parsley, to decorate

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

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

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