Grilling salmon in foil is an easy technique I use with foods that cook quickly, like fish, shrimp, bite-sized meats and fresh veggies. The options are endless—and the cleanup is easy. —A.J. Weinhold, McArthur, California
It was her husband, Steve, who came up with this easy, foil-packet recipe for flaky, fork-tender Lemon Basil Salmon, says Marianne Bauman in Modesto, California. “We eat a lot of salmon and Steve likes trying out different herbs and spices on our food. This recipe's a winner!”
a useful tip may be gleaned from May/June 2005 BYL regarding wood chips: If using a charcoal grill, add wood chips directly to the coals. If using a gas grill, wrap the chips in a foil pouch; poke several holes in the pouch and place it on the rock grate.
“My son David always ordered the salmon sandwich at a local pub," shares Susan Griffiths of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. "In trying to replicate it, he came up with this salad. It's the only recipe he's ever made and our entire family thinks it's great.”
"For years, my husband worked for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-so I've prepared fish all kinds of different ways. This variation of stuffed salmon gets high marks from my family." —Cathie Beard, Philomath, Oregon
I came across this recipe in a local fundraiser cookbook. We made some slight adjustments to it since then, but it is a great recipe to use when grilling. It's a favorite summer meal.
