Fish In Foil

full star full star full star full star empty star

There are also lots of instant-ish one-pot dinners you can make over a camp stove, if you can't wrangle a fire into flames in the rain. But here I'm going to try to offer you recipes here that might be useful even if you're not camping -- recipes that could be made at home during normal life, where every trip to bathroom is not an adventure in entomology and arachnophobia. Yay. Even if you are not camping (in the pouring rain), try cooking fish this way on your charcoal or gas grill: the fish absorbs some of the smoky flavor while remaining deliciously moist and tender. Also, try it with these easy Squash Packets – a perfect accompaniment.

Double Delicious Grilled Chicken

full star full star full star full star empty star

Another delicious dinner! This is an absolute favorite summer meal. The chicken is so, so succulently excellent: tangy, herby, and mouth-watering. The pre-cooking marinade makes it delightfully tender and seasoned, but then the post-cooking marinade introduces all the fantastic and fragile flavor component -- the herbs and citrus zest and garlic -- that would have burned off on the grill. Also, since you slice up the grilled chicken, you maximize the flavor-absorbing surface area. You will be a hero to your family and dinner guests. Seriously.

Spring Couscous with Asparagus, Peas and Mint

Here's a quick, one-pot meal that makes the most of spring greens: asparagus, two types of sweet pea, and mint all get folded into a delicious dish that pops with the flavors of lemon and feta and the crunch of pumpkin seeds. Serve the dish hot or cold, as a side dish or main dish, and vary the veggies according to the season: make it with tomatoes, corn, and basil in the summer, or with winter squash in cold weather -- just be sure that everything is cooked before you add the couscous, as this is a more-or-less instant grain.
