Salmon & Asparagus with Lemon and Dill Seasoning

When you’re camping, it’s best to keep the cooking simple, but full of flavor. At some point though, your camping crew may grow tired of the same old hotdogs with mustard on a bun. We aren’t knockin’ hot dogs – we love them! But, it’s good to have a little bit of variety to keep things interesting. One of the easiest ways to heat up fish or meat and vegetables is to wrap your meal servings in foil, put them over the fire, and voila! Dinner is served! Clean up is easy, portions are controlled, and the flavors are delicious!

Here is a tasty recipe to bring to your campfire this season at Lake George Escape!

Salmon & Asparagus with Lemon and Dill Seasoning

Ingredients (makes 4):

4 wild salmon fillets
1-2 bunches asparagus (depends on how much you want to eat!)
Olive oil
1 lemon, cut into slices
Dill on the sprig
Salt & Pepper for seasoning
Aluminum foil – cut into large rectangular pieces. These should be big enough to wrap ingredients all together in individual servings.


  1. Season your salmon fillets with salt and pepper. It’s not necessary to remove the skin, but if it’s not for you, you can remove it. If you remove the skin, just remember to season both sides of the fillet.
  2. Cut your lemon into slices.
  3. Assemble your foil packets by adding one salmon fillet, a few stalks of asparagus, top with lemon slices and dill sprigs. Sprinkle salt and pepper by raising your hand high above to scatter spices evenly. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil over the ingredients.
  4. Fold up the packet kind of like a little present – by folding the longer side of the foil, one side over the other, and then folding the sides to create a little foil packet.
  5. Put over the fire until salmon is aromatic and fish flakes off easily with a fork.
