There’s been a dire shortage of camping missions recently, what with the covid and rat racing commitments. And we missed the salmon run last year. So this year it was doubly crucial that the annual traditional salmon mission went ahead. A team of world class fisherman were assembled and this is what one of them caught:
Not everyone on the fishing team was world class. In fact probably only one member was. Among the amateurs was the new guy. His skills are poor but I’m training him up to be a salmon fisherman of the highest caliber just like his old man. He helped spot salmon schools. He’s not very good at it.
For cooking I tried something different this camp – battered deep fried salmon.
I was hoping, if deep frying can make cockroaches taste good, then it can make Australian Salmon taste good too. And it worked! The unpleasant fishiness was gone and it tasted like a normal bit of deep fried fish just like from the fish and chip shop. The only thing that gave it away was the firm texture. Of course it helped being bled straight away and super fresh and with all the dark coloured meat removed.
Here’s a couple of sunset pics for your viewing pleasure, that’s it for now, happy salmon season!
