Campfire Spicy Creole Shrimp

OK…here is another interesting recipe for the campfire!

Spicy Creole Shrimp
serves 4

The sauce is where all the flavor of this dish is, so serve it over rice or with crusty bread for sopping.

Olive oil spray or nonstick cooking spray
1 large clove garlic, minced
1 small onion, diced
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/8 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1 lemon
2 pounds shrimp, peeled
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick), cut into pieces

In a medium bowl or pot, mix together garlic, onion, bell pepper, paprika, thyme,
cayenne, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice and toss with shrimp. Prepare 4 large squares of aluminum foil by spraying with olive oil or cooking spray. Place 1/4 of shrimp mixture in the center of each piece of foil and top each with 1/4 of the butter. Fold up sides and seal securely, leaving room for heat and steam to circulate inside.

Grill packets over high heat until shrimp are cooked through, about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve immediately.

Campfire Peach Cobbler

My husband asked me to find a dessert recipe for camping. i found several and this is the one I will try first…

Campfire Peach Cobbler

  • 2 – 29 oz. cans sliced peaches
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 T. cinnamon
  • 1 – 18 oz. box yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick butter
How to Prepare:
In a small bowl, drain juice from 1 can of peaches – discard juice from the other can. Add sugar and cinnamon to the juice. Mix well. Place sliced peaches in a 13x9x2 inch aluminum pan. Pour juice mixture over peaches. Evenly spread box of cake mix over peaches. Cut butter into tablespoons – dot evenly over cake mix. Cover pan loosely with foil. Set on even campfire grate with even heat for about 15 minutes or until steam begins to escape. Once you see steam, remove pan from fire but do not remove foil from top. Let pan rest for ten minutes until cake mix is absorbed and begins to form a crumbly crust.
