Campfire Flame Grilled Salmon Recipe with Step by Step Instructions
from Thomas Sixt
Hi, I am a German Chef and Food Photographer. The imparting of cooking knowledge is my great passion. Everyone can cook for himself and with this website I would like to contribute to its success. Cooking questions I answer you gladly at the end of the articles. Have fun and good luck!
I present my recipe for Flame Grilled Salmon in this post. This is a wonderfully simple fish dish for the garden and barbecue.
The barbecue has stayed in the cellar for a long time, I prefer to use the fire bowl. That way I can end the barbecue event with a campfire. Today I can do without the charcoal completely. The beech wood will be used in a moment. After all, our fish fillet needs indirect fire heat.
A cooking video accompanies you around the campfire. I wish you good luck and bon appétit!

I’ll leave some more information about the special sesame seeds in the last line of the list. I have put together a great sesame spice set together with chefino.de. The sesame furikake come from Japan and taste delicious.
These are sesame seeds with wasabi, ume plums, kimchi and yuzu flavour. The sesame seeds don’t just go with fish, but with any vegetable, salad, Asian dish or fusion cuisine. I can’t keep my fingers off them right now, a tasty and delightful change.

Flame Grilled Salmon Recipe Prepare with confidence with the guidance of Chef Thomas Sixt.
|1||pc||Salmon fillet (as a whole)|
|1||sachet||Flame salmon spice (Flame Salmon Spice)|
Prepare the salmon fillet and flame salmon board in the kitchen. Assemble the board according to the instructions and test it on the cold fire bowl. Then build the campfire, put the fire extinguisher or garden hose in position and light the fire.
Cut open the salmon fillet packaging and rinse the fillet under cold running water.
Dry the salmon fillet on kitchen paper.
Provide a flame salmon board.
Coat the grill board with olive oil.
Place the salmon fillet skin side down on the prepared board.
Sprinkle the fish fillets with the spice. I used a little too much, I use the flaming salmon spice rather sparingly.
Fix the fish fillet on the board with the tensioner.
Cook the prepared salmon fillet indirectly on the campfire for a good 35 minutes. Towards the end of the cooking time, I sprinkle rosemary and thyme into the fire so that the aromas of the herbs have an effect on the fish fillet.
Remove the salmon fillet from the fire, using fireproof gloves.
Remove the tensioner from the flame salmon board.
Prepare hot plates. Remove the pieces of fish from the fillet with a knife or spoon.
Place salmon pieces in hot plates, dress with olive oil and serve quickly.
