Campfire Dinner: Salmon Tacos
Tacos eaten outside are by far better than tacos eaten inside, it’s a proven fact y’all. Throw some salmon into the mix and BOOM, it’s a god damn party. Be sure to clean up the campsite after cookin’ this one up, some friendly critters would be pretty hyped to stumble upon your leftovers and turn your campsite into a landscape similar to the aftermath of a tornado! Check out the recipe below complied by Kimberley Hasselbrink – a food photographer, blogger, and extreme outdoor enthusiast.
“Tacos are, I believe, among the most perfect of foods. And that perfection happens to hold up in the context of camping, too. The only ingredient here that really needs to be kept chilled is the salmon. Other than that, you've got a bevy of sturdy ingredients that travel well, and an absolutely unfussy meal that can be eaten out of hand. The cooking times for the salmon should be pretty similar whether you cook over a fire or camp stove. And the spice rub is equally tasty on chicken or tofu”.
Uncle Gene’s Outdoor Cooking Tips:
Go ahead: You can make the spice rub at home! Apply it to the salmon beforehand and transport the fish in a large plastic bag or travel container.
