I have a huge herb garden and love using herbs in almost everything I cook. Living in the Pacific Northwest, we eat a lot of wild-caught salmon, so I use fresh herbs in this moist and delicious grilled recipe. On cooler days, bake it instead. —Michelle Glassmeyer Wunsch, Bothell, WA

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!”
We love to cook on the grill at our house. I've used this flavorful salmon recipe several times and we always enjoy it. The parsley, rosemary and green onions help make the tender fillets a tempting main dish that looks impressive.

My husband and I got this recipe from a chef in 1982...and we've never served salmon any other way since then! Everyone loves the mild-tasting marinade, and out here in Washington friends are always asking me for the recipe.
