3 Recipes to Level-Up Your Camping Kitchen

Move over hot dogs and boring macaroni and cheese, we’re classing up your next camping trip with these 3 easy camping recipes.

(Ok, maybe not quite that easy, but you get the picture).

When you’re camping, hiking, or backpacking, the last thing you want to deal with is food prep and clean up. Not to mention having to pack in large coolers and bins of ingredients.

But keeping it simple doesn’t mean having to resort to food from a crinkly bag.

By making meals ahead of time or choosing recipes with minimal and easy-to-use ingredients, you’ll have more time for campfire stories and coming in first at the family Bocci tournament.

Here are our 3 favourite summer recipes to get you started taking your camping experience to the next culinary level.

Salmon and Watermelon Salsa

This flavour-packed summer salsa also serves as the perfect side salad. And the best part about it is that the longer it sits, the tastier it gets. Combine Gold Seal’s MSC approved Wild Sockeye Salmon with ingredients including mint, chipotle powder, black beans, and, of course, sweet, juicy watermelon, and you’ve got yourself a lunch, snack or dinner winner.

Salmon Rainbow Wrap

Prep your filling ingredients for our Salmon Rainbow Wrap before you leave home and it’ll be easy assembly when lunchtime rolls around. Use responsibly caught Gold Seal Wild Pink Salmon as your healthy, omega-3s packed protein, and layer in fresh ingredients like carrots, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and avocado for the perfect mid-day meal.

Mackerel Paté

When’s the last time you ate something decadent while sitting in your favourite camping chair? That’s what we thought. Snack or appetizer time doesn’t have to be greasy potato chips and leftover burger patties. Try our easy to make Mackerel Paté for a change of pace. Mixing three simple ingredients — Gold Seal Wild Mackerel, fresh lemon, and yogurt — can be done in minutes and will taste like you spent hours. Serve it on crackers or cucumbers for campers looking to stay low carb.
