Campfire Roasted Peaches

I may have found a camping dessert that is actually better than s’mores. I would have never thought that fruit for dessert would beat ooey gooey s’mores, but wow, this is incredible! This recipe serves two, but you probably want to at least double it! Not here for paleo, top the finished product with vanilla Greek yogurt!

I used white peaches, but this recipe could be used on yellow peaches, apricots, or nectarines.

Spicy Campfire Garlic Shrimp

After a long day of hiking, the last thing I want to do is attempt to prepare dinner in the woods. I was able to prepare this the day before, and then just make a fire to cook it up! I used frozen shrimp, which thawed overnight in the cooler, but ensured freshness.

Ingredients:
2 dozen frozen, large, peeled shrimp
1/4 cup olive oil
5 garlic cloves – minced
1/4 cup white wine
1 tsp piri piri (or substitute chili powder)
Salt and Pepper

1. Before leaving on your camping trip, combine all ingredients in a ziplock bag. Keep shrimp frozen if you plan on using the next day, or defrost if you are going to use that night.
2. When ready to cook, build a hot fire to produce embers. Make a flat pile of them and place a flame resistant pot directly on them.
3. Add shrimp, stirring frequently. Depending on temperature, cook time may vary. Cook until shrimp curl and are pink, approximately 10 minutes.
