Campfire Mussels

Camping Recipes

Campfire Mussels are as easy to cook over an open flame as they are in the kitchen. Serve this amazing dish to your friends and family hot off the coals with a chunk of fresh bread to soak up the juices.


  • One large onion
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • One bunch of fresh parsley
  • A handful of fresh mussels per person
  • Lemon juice
  • Salt


Chop the onion, garlic and parsley as small as you can. De-beard the mussels and discard any that are open. Heat up a large pan on the fire until it is sizzling hot. Add the chopped vegetables, mussels and lemon juice to the pan and cover with a lid. If you have a grater, the zest from the lemons that you juiced will make this dish extra fresh.

The campfire mussels will open when they are done. Divide into large bowls, spoon in the juice and serve with hot, fresh bread. Enjoy!
