Campsite cooking: Spicy rubbed salmon fillets with potato salad

2ba5a56c-21ba-4923-8039-3a3a2b40739f

In association with Outdoor Revolution

Fresh salmon is pretty hard to beat, and a simple Cajun-inspired rub makes it fine camping fare. Serve with a home-made potato salad and some fresh asparagus

Ingredients (for 4)

  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 kg new potatoes
  • 1 bunch asparagus
  • 3 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 bunch chives chopped

For rub

  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • Half tsp ground coriander
  • Half tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp hot paprika
  • Half tsp garlic granules
  • Half tsp dried thyme
  • Half tsp chilli powder (optional)

How to cook it

Start by putting together the mix for your rub. to save time on the campsite, you can do this at home in advance and take it with you in a sealed container.

To create the rub, add all the ingredients together in a bowl and mix thoroughly. If you like an added kick, add chilli powder to the mix.

A couple of hours before eating time, boil the potatoes, cover and leave to completely cool down.

Liberally sprinkle the spice mix over the salmon and rub in. The flavour will be enhanced if you leave to sit for around 20 minutes, but it's not essential.

Heat oil in a frying pan big enough for four fillets. When the oil is hot, place the four fillets skin side down in the pan. If it doesn't sizzle, turn the heat up.

Leave the salmon to cook, drizzle some oil into another pan and put on a medium heat on the second hob.

Snap the woody ends off the asparagus and place the spears in the hot pan, adding salt and pepper to taste. They should be done in 15–20 minutes.

While the salmon and asparagus are cooking, put the potatoes, mayonnaise and chives in a bowl,

season generously and mix together until the mayo is evenly distributed and the potatoes are well coated.

Check on the salmon, and when the flesh is opaque about two thirds of the way through, flip the fillets over, turn off the heat and leave to cook through for another two or three minutes. Serve up and enjoy.

Outdoor Revolution Twin Burner Gas Stove & Grill

The Twin Burner Gas Stove and Grill lets you up your campsite cooking game considerably, offering the perfect blend of high performance, compact size and style.

What makes it unique is the way it operates. Unusually for a double burner and grill, it runs off a 450g screw-fitting butane/propane canister – which Outdoor Revolution also supplies – rather
than a heavy, refillable gas cylinder, cutting down on space and weight during transportation.

You only pay for the gas you need to use when you are away, whether it be for a weekend or an extended trip.

Expect to pay: £99.99
