Helen Vail marinates salmon and vegetables in a pleasant lime mixture, then tucks individual portions into foil packets. "I like to serve them with grilled skewers of corn-on-the-cob rounds, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes," adds the Glenside, Pennsylvania cook.

TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min.
MAKES: 4 servings


  • 1-1/3 cups lime juice
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1 small tomato, chopped
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced


  1. In a small bowl, combine the first four ingredients. Pour half of the marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the salmon. Seal bag and turn to coat. Add the tomato, pepper and onions to remaining marinade; refrigerate fish and vegetables for 30 minutes.
  2. Drain and discard marinade from fish and vegetables. Place each salmon fillet and about 1/3 cup vegetable mixture on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. square). Fold foil around mixture and seal tightly.
  3. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Open carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 4 servings.

"This is the recipe every member of my family requests for their birthday dinner. Since we are garlic lovers, we frequently add 1 T minced garlic to the sauce."
