One of the most fun things about camping has been the outdoor cooking experience. There is something very comforting about watching campfires dotting a field, as the sun starts to go down, while you're huddled over your own (blowing and coughing and sputtering, and fanning frantically. I just ruined the mood there didn't I? Sorry!). Over the last few years we've made our fair share of meals over a campfire and on our handy portable hob (purchased after much research. About as much as went into buying the cute camp cooking set and toaster!).
If you're a camping newbie, here are 5 really easy and tasty camping recipes.
A very quick and easy fish recipe. Lemon butter sauce infused with capers and garlic, poured over grilled salmon, served on a bed of wilted spinach.
A delicious and healthy recipe combining cod with great Asian flavours
I'm obsessed with prawn toast. What? You didn't know? I'm good at hiding my obsessions :) Can't imagine a Chinese/Thai meal out/ takeaway without prawn toast. But I've never dared to make it at home - didn't want to ruin it for myself if it turned out terrible!
Then, last year my friend and I decided to make ourselves a Thai dinner, and I bravely suggested prawn toast to complement her green curry. And then, earlier this year, my husband and I got ourselves a dim sum steamer (more on this later!) and we decided to cook up a Chinese feast, which had to include prawn toast of course. So I've had a bit of practice!
What an absolutely gorgeous meal! Sorry, I had to cut straight to the chase there. Well actually, more straight to the attack :) Most Londoners who enjoy seafood have probably already been to this gem. I've only recently chosen to stop being vegetarian, and have discovered a great love for seafood, so this meal was an absolute treat.
