A Fast Way To Make A Tasty Dinner Camping In Nature


The Day Is Comming To An EndAs the day come to an end, it’s time to eat dinner. I don’t love making camping dinners just on my travels, but also on just one normal day, after work, like yesterday. It’s really fast to make something tasty, while enjoying the pure beauty of nature all around you.

Let me show you how  to make. . .

Time to make: 60 minutes

Preparation

Prepare The Fire

The First thing you need to do is make yourself a fire. The best option is to use a fire-pot, but if you don’t have one, you can just use rocks or dig a whole.  Just be very careful about burning the environment!
Put some dry grass into the fire-pot bottom. Put some small pieces of dry wood over it. Than put some small pieces of char-coal on top of that.

Than start the fire on all four sides of the “fire pile”. When the fire gets stronger, put some more char-coal on it. But always be careful to keep the fire burning.

While the wind is keeping the fire nicely burning, you can prepare the Salmon Steak and Potatoes. The tricky part here is to have the fish and the potatoes ready to eat at the same time. So we are going to use a trick to bake them both at the same time.

Put Potatos Into Hot Charkcoal

Put the potatoes in the aluminum folio  with some salt and wrap them up.

If the fire is already gone and you have nicely burning char-coal, put the potatoes in the fire place and cover it with char-coal.

When done with the potatoes, prepare the salmon steak. Put in on a plate and put Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper on both sides of the steak.

You should wait at least 15 minutes, after putting in the potatoes, before you put the fish on the fire. The fish is grilled quite fast, in 10 minutes. And the potatoes need about 25 minutes to be baked properly.

Use this time to enjoy nature;)

Turn Around The Salmon Steak

After the beer put on the salmon steak and grill it for 10 – 15 minutes. Turning it around every 3-5 minutes to get it equally grilled on both sides and keep it juicy.

When the fish is nearly done, lift it and take out the potatoes with a stick. Be careful the aluminum folio is very hot after being in the fire. But the fish back on and unwrap the potatoes.

After 20 - 30 Minutes Take Out The Potatoes

The folio gets cold after, like 2 minutes after being removed from the fire.

Put them on a plate and cut them in half. If you like you can put some salt on it.

The Salmon steak is ready by now. So now all you need to do is put it nicely by the potatoes on the plate, get yourself the other beer.

And just enjoy the all natural meal, prepared on all natural way . . . surrounded by almighty nature.

After the fun time we had drawing on the beach, we have decided to move our snail house (camper van) to my favorite cliff spot in the Peniche area, Batel.

We stopped in the super market Continete on the way, to buy everything we needed for a nice fish picnic diner evening.

I really love this kind of dinner. Surrounded by nature and the creativity of cooking with the cooperation of the natural element, for crating a great meal.

And this kind of food is just the most tasty of them all. I do this kind of dinner in the summer at home too. Just drive to one place with a friend or two after work, make a fire, bake some sausages, swim in the river . . . it’s just the best!

The Fishes and the Brazilian backed brad were soon ready to become a pure sensation of pleasure in the mouth. And we truly enjoyed it with,  for me, the best Portuguese beer Sagres. Some people preffer Super Bock, but Ssagres is just more drinkable and therefore more enjoyable.

Adding to the sensations of tasty food, there was a spectacular sight of the sun sinking into the ocean. There were the sound of the ocean waves smashing in to the rocky cliffs below and the pleasant, easy reggae music playing . . . was just a soul-satisying monment.

Defenately The place to be . . .

I saw this advertisement for Corona beer on my way to the airport to fly to my home country Slovenia. On my last day of a 2 months long journey, where I have discovered that London, Portugal, The World is . . . my place to be.
Realy special moment for the last day of the journey on that station in London.

Mostly because of the song “From Places Where You’d Rather Be”  that is associated to this advertisement. This song always reminds me of moments like this, on that day . . . miles away

And this video . . . speechless

Thank you Živa and Nina,
for the great soul moments of that day.
