Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray and place salmon in the middle of the foil.

  • Whisk maple syrup, Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; brush onto salmon. Sprinkle butter chunks over salmon. Fold aluminum foil over salmon, sealing the edges together.

  • Cook on the preheated grill until salmon flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Adjust Cajun Creole seasoning depending on personal taste.

A smoker bag can be used in place of the aluminum foil.

I really enjoyed this recipe. Maple and salmon it's like a match made in heaven. I made it exactly as written. I did however cut and individually wrap the salmon pieces. I grilled them over medium heat for 5 mins per side then I moved them over to indirect heat for the remaining 5 mins - total of 15 mins. Next time I will only grill for 10-12 mins. While there is nothing "smokey" about this recipe it is very tasty and I will definitely make it again. One pound of salmon for 2 people makes VERY generous servings. I prefer to cut a pound into 3-4 pieces. Also no need to oil grate (!?) since the salmon is not directly on grate. Thank you wendi! Read More

Tasty easy recipe. I made it as instructed, with 2 exceptions. After reading a comment about lack of smokey flavor, I added a drop of concentrated liquid smoke. It smelled smokier than it tasted. Next time I'll add 2 drops. Also, instead of using the BBQ, I cooked the two 4 oz. salmon fillets in a preheated oven at 400F for 15 minutes. My wife, a retired high-school foods and Home Ec teacher, said it was perfectly done. I'll have to take her word for it - most of my cooking is by the book or guess work and sometimes I get lucky. (This meal earned me an "A") I placed the foil packet on a rimmed cookie sheet and when dishing up the salmon, poured the liquid remains back over it. Served on steamed rice with a Caesar salad from a bagged kit on the side. Thanks for posting the recipe, Wendi. It was lovely and I will make it again. Read More

This was so delicious!!!! I made it as close to the instructions as possible but did not have the ingredients for the creole seasoning so I used Old Bay seasoning instead nor did I combine the seasoning with the syrup instead I put the seasoning on the salmon then drizzled the syrup (which was butter flavored) on along with some hickory smoked liquid then put less on than a tablespoon of butter for both cuts wrapped in foil and cooked it on my electric BBQ for 20 minutes in between 350-375! It was perfect!!! Made broccoli cheddar rice and green beans! Will defiantly keep this recipe! Thanks for sharing! Read More

Really good and very simple. Not only will I make it again but I will try it with things other than salmon such as chicken and pork chops. Read More

The whole family loved it. Even my wife liked it and she doesn't like salmon. I was concerned it would be too spicy for my daughter but it wasn't. Next time I would add more creole seasoning to increase the kick. Read More
