Fish are a great idea to diversify your camp menu. They are easy to prepare, delicious and first of all – healthy. They don’t stay fresh for long so it is best to prepare them for the first dinner. We have a tradition in Basecamp Emalco to start every camping with big dinner and to feast with salmon and wheat beer.
While serving fishes it is also very important how you prepare them and with what type of additives. It is said that the seasonings are as important as the type of the fish and they play an important role in cooking. So remember to take proper herbal seasoning while packing for a camp.
