We have recently moved to an area that has enormous salmon runs and since we are a family that eats fish as one of our main sources of protien we plan on camping on the river bank for many days...

Could anyone suggest what foods are great cooked over the campfire? We did the veggie dogs last night but want to try something else for this evening...as well as the many days to come...

We have a few pots and pans and access to clean water for boiling...

one of my favorite things is making "campfire dinners" - we made them with hamburger growing up but you could make them with pre-flavored or marinated tofu, tempeh or seitan if you're a vegetarian - just take some (canned or otherwise easy-to-transport) veggies like corn or whatever you'd like, some potatoes (fresh or canned), carrots, some "meat", and some dried onion soup mix, and mix it all together on a big sheet of aluminum foil. You may want to add just a little olive oil if you use one of the meat substitutes. Then seal up that sheet of foil like a packet and wrap it up in another sheet to make sure it doesn't leak, and put it in the hot coals of your campfire.

You could easily do this with fish, or just veggies, or a more interesting combo of veggies and flavorings/spices. The hamburger/corn/carrots/potatoes was just our traditional way of doing it!

thanks for that suggestion I'm going to try it, we will probably make it with ground turkey, love the idea of having everything all in one foil...

what about corn on the cob in the husk, how long does it need to be soaked in water before cooking it on the fire?
