Cozy Campfire Salmon

In true Scandinavian style, eating around a campfire is such a cozy experience that everyone must try a few times in their lifetime. It is especially beautiful this time of year, with the snow-covered ice, no one around and the endless white horizon that has such a calming effect. In true countryside style, we decided to make a fire on the ice and cook some open fire salmon in these beautiful surroundings. With the temperature around -10 celsius degrees, we sat on reindeer skin and warmed up by the fire as the salmon cooked above the flames. Sometimes the simplest of cooking can be the best and this recipe proves just that.  The salmon didn’t require much for it to taste great and why is it that food always tastes so much better outdoors?



  • 500g salmon
  • Ground black pepper/salt
  • lemon wedges
  • Olive oil
  • Chopped parsley
  • aioli sauce

This recipe is fairly simple if you have a little campfire set up. Begin by coating the salmon with oil and sprinkle salt/pepper on top. Place the fish into an iron grid and place it on top of the fire. Let it cook gently for about 15 minutes on each side. Ready to plate: Squeeze lemon on top, along with chopped parsley and a generous scoop of aioli sauce.
