  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  • Partner Tip
  • Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
