Pie Iron Asian Salmon


Pie Iron Asian Salmon

This is basically a foil pack meal, but we never know how clean the grills at the campsite are. We have had foils packs tear open and our food on the grill – eek! Using our pie irons helps us keep a little bit of control over the cooking process and what our food touches.



  • 4 small salmon filets – we like the ones we find at Costco
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil w/ 1 teaspoon red chili flakes & 1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dry ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Stir fry veggies, fresh or frozen

Preparation Instructions

Tear a piece of foil that is roughly 12 inches by 12 inches for each fish filet and spray one side with nonstick spray.

In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil w/ chili flakes & sesame seeds, vinegar, ginger, garlic powder, and salt & pepper until they are all well combined.

Place ½ cup of stir fry vegetables in the center of the foil.

Drizzle a tablespoon of the sauce on top.

Place a fish filet on top of the vegetables.

Spoon sauce over the fish.

Wrap the foil packet to seal it closed and then place it in the pie iron and close it tightly.

Place the pie iron over the campfire for 10-15 minutes until vegetables are hot and fish is flaky.

Carefully open the iron and unwrap the packet – making sure to watch for steam.

Serve immediately and enjoy!
