Grilled Salmon in Foil AKA Gourmet Salmon
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.
