Trevor and I camped out one of the nights he was here - I mean, there isn't anything more father and son than that, right? The evening started out very wet, so the fire was a challenge and getting up the tent was interesting . . .
After we got the tent up, we retreated to the car to warm up and access whether our plan was going to work - we had a massive seafood cookout planned, and driving rain was going to put a huge damper on things.
The rain let up a bit, and we decided to go for it - I got some seawater boiling and marinated the sockeye salmon while Trevor cut up veggies and made shish kabobs for the grill. We were pretty soaked but started to slowly dry out as we worked on our feast.
I don't own a pot big enough for an 8 pound red king crab - my canning pot doesn't even begin to do the job - but we still got the steam going and got it done by switching it around a couple times. After it was ready, I shucked all the meat out and lightly sauteed it in a large frying pan to get some buttery goodness going. With all the other food, even with two big hungry camping boys eating there was lots of crab left over for spaghetti sauce, but that is another post . . . .
The kabobs are ready! Cherry tomatoes, peppers, and huge scallops - great job Trevor! The salmon turned out great, baked in foil with a little olive oil and some spices.
If you have never cooked gigantic Bering Sea scallops like marshmallows around a campfire, you're really missing out! We snacked on these while we waited for the salmon, kabobs and crab to be ready.
After eating like kings, we slept like dead men and awoke to a pretty nice day. Trevor put the tent away while I changed the flat tire we got on the way in the night before, and we headed home where I showered and went to work (of course) and Trevor headed out solo on some more adventures . . . .
