BBQ Salmon in Foil

This dish is so light and fresh tasting and doesn’t take any time at all to prepare. It’s also something I pretty much always have ingredients for. I just have to pick up the fish and we’re good to go.
I only got the before shot, so you'll have to trust me when I tell you it still looks this good after it's cooked too.

I love that grilling season is here again. I have to say for the first time in my life winter went by relatively quickly. We moved into our new house last year in April, and I can’t believe this will be our second spring/summer already. I hope the good weather keeps up and we have lots of warm evening spent in the backyard enjoying good food and drinks. Ahhh… summer.

Divide this recipe by half if it’s just the two of you.


2 tomatoes cut into wedges
6 green onion green and white parts, chopped
1 lemon, squeezed
1 Tsp of sugar
3 Tbs of olive oil
¼ Cup of dill, chopped
¼ Cup of parsley, chopped

Place salmon filets/steaks in foil packets and top with tomato and onion. Whisk together sugar, lemon, oil and pour over fish. Sprinkle herbs on top of fish. Grill salmon for about 10-15 minutes or until salmon has turned a nice coral colour. Half way through open up packets so salmon does not steam.
