Grilled Salmon in Foil AKA Gourmet Salmon

Grilled Salmon in foil is a simple way to make healthy delicious food when camping. Add a pack of foil wrapped veggies and in less than 20 minutes dinner is on the table. I was tempted to name this dish gourmet salmon but decided against it because I didn’t want the dish to seem too fussy. One taste of the Grilled Foil Wrapped Salmon will have you thinking gourmet all packaged up in a pretty foil wrapper.

No fussing with this dish, it is simple and straightforward. Prepare rectangles of heavy duty foil to wrap the salmon in. I tend to use double foil to make sure all the delightful juices stay put to keep the salmon moist and flavorful.
  • 1 large piece of salmon, preferably wild caught
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • Favorite seasoning Rub ( I used Trader Joe's BBQ Rub and Seasonings with Coffee and below)
  1. Heat Grill.
  2. Place onion and lemon slices in the center of a rectangle of heavy duty foil wrap.
  3. Rub salmon generously with favorite seasoning rub.
  4. Place salmon on top of onion and lemon slices.
  5. Cover all with additional rectangle of foil and seal up tightly.
  6. Add a second layer of heavy duty foil wrap if preferred.
  7. Place fish on grill for 7 -10 minutes (depending on thickness of fish. Turning once during cook time.
  8. Remove from heat. Carefully cut foil to expose fish. Juices will be extremely hot and the steam can burn so take precautions to prevent a burn.

    I make salmon often, we love it. My recipe is simply maple syrup and soy sauce on top of the salmon. My family loves it. I saw your comment about ‘Foodie Fridays’. Would you give me the direct link of this linky party please? Thanks in advance.

    We aren’t huge fish-eaters at our house (no particular reason why), but your grilled salmon looks amazing, and it sounds so easy too! I’d love to give your recipe a try soon. Thanks for sharing. Pinning!

    This looks so good Shari. We love to catch fish and cook them right there by the lake or stream in foil also. You are doing a marvelous job on this series. Shared around the universe. Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow

      Thanks Carrie. I will have Part 3 of the series up sometime today. Running a bit behind but I don’t want to cut corners. I would much rather be late and put out a quality post. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did in writing it. Thanks for stopping by.
