Campfire Lemon Salmon

It is hard to cook paleo while camping… kind of ironic since that’s all the cavemen did! Who doesn’t want hotdogs and s’mores?!? This foil packet salmon is so satisfying and easy that I bet any caveman would turn in those calorie laden meals for this one!

I made the packets before heading out to camp. As soon as we got there, I got a fire going nice and hot to create embers and then used them to cook the packet.

Ingredients:

1 pound salmon filet

Drizzle of olive oil

1 lemon cut into thin slices

1 bunch parsley

Salt & pepper

1/4 cup white wine

1. Before heading out on your trip, assemble the packet. Drizzle olive oil on a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil. Lay out half the lemon slices and top with half the parsley. Place the salmon on the parsley, and season with salt and pepper. Cover with the remainder of the parsley and lemons, pour wine over, and form a tightly sealed packet. Keep it in the cooler until ready to cook.

2. Upon getting to your campsite, make a hot fire to create embers. Place packet directly on embers and cook for 8 minutes on each side.

3. Carefully remove the packet and let cool for a minute until opening. Be careful of the steam!
