Camping is a great time to enjoy all the great outdoors has to offer, like hiking and fishing – and nothing beats a fresh grilled salmon after a day of adventuring. Whether you're exploring the wilderness or just having a family camp-out in the backyard, this salmon recipe is perfect for enhancing the camping experience.


  • 1 lb. salmon filets or steaks 3/4 – 1-in. thick
    (wild caught preferred)
  • 2 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp. dry sherry
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger root
    or 1 tsp. dry ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 green onion (scallion preferred) thinly sliced


Rinse fish with cold water and pat dry with paper towels.

In zip-lock bag, combine soy sauce, sherry, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic. Add salmon, seal bag, and turn to coat. Refrigerate 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Prepare Kamado for baking (set to 275°-350°F). Use Vision Grills lava stone (or pizza stone) on top of cooking grate.

Add 2-3 Mesquite or Hickory wood chunks or 2 handfuls of chips over the charcoal for smoking, close lid until ready to add fish.

Place fish on oiled lava or pizza stone skin side down. Grill salmon about 7-10 minutes until fish flakes easily with fork.
