Joshua and I decided to take a small camping trip down to Washington. One last trip before the west coast becomes too rainy to enjoy long extended excursions.
As a result, we have all those funny situations that can only happen with a spouse while on extended road trips.
“No honey I said right, you went left. ”
“No you didn’t, you said left”
“Ok, well whatever, we need to go the other way.”
“Oh darling, you really shouldn’t eat that…you’re going to fart like mad”
“Honey, I need to pee.”
“We just stopped 15 minutes ago!”
“I know but I have to go again.”
Why is it that the minute the car gets on a highway, I have to pee? Every single time?
It’s like taking 15 minutes to put a child in a snow suit, just to have them say they have to pee the minute the boots get laced.
You know how that is, right?
At least one thing can be simple. Camping food. I love that we get to eat really lovely, healthy camping food and I get to try out my camp stove cooking skills. I’m always so amazed how few things a person needs to make a delicious meal. Or how great of a meal a person can create off of one burner. When I’m at home I sometimes forget that. Camping puts that back into perspective.
Last night’s meal was supposed to be made on a campfire. When we pulled into Dash Point, we quickly found out there was a state wide fire ban. No biggy, we have a single burner stove. Steamed green beans, sauteed crimini mushrooms and sweet red peppers, all served with wild salmon au beurre noisette. YUM. Now that’s camping.
Oh, Beurre noisette is just fancy speak for brown butter. It’s really not fancy, but it tastes amazing. I love how one simple ingredient can take on a completely new and fab flavor through a simple cooking process.
I’m still amazed how that whole meal came together in less than 20 minutes, cooked in 1 pot and 1 frying pan. And all on 1 burner. It just goes to show you that a restaurant quality meal, can be healthy and simple. It doesn’t require fancy kitchen gadgets, a big kitchen, or a wide selection of pots and pans.
Here are 3 salmon recipes that come together easily and don’t require a ton of fuss. Serve them with your favorite veggies, and dinner can be on the table in 15 minutes. Whether you decide to use a frying pan, oven or bbq, salmon cooks up in less than 15 minutes (usually in less than 8) and is packed with healthy fats, protein and nutrients. The best part is it can be as fancy or as simple as you like.
- Tunisian Salmon with Minted Aioli
- Salmon Kabobs with Pine Nut Salsa
- (Time saving tip: skip the Naan Bread and dish it up with your favorite veggie or side)
- Sumac Spiced Salmon with Beurre Noir
