This is my favorite salmon recipe that I put together in college. This can be done on the grill or in the oven. By pairing salmon with rich/tangy lemon, rosemary and garlic sauce, this is a great summertime meal. Serve with grilled/baked veggies (I prefer broccoli, Brussels sprouts or green beans). Enjoy!

  • Season salmon with seafood seasoning, salt, and black pepper. Arrange salmon in the center of a large piece of aluminum foil; add lemon juice, 4 teaspoons olive oil, and white wine. Top each fillet with 2 lemon slices, capers, and a fresh rosemary sprig. Fold three of the sides of the foil toward the middle, creating a foil bag.

  • Whisk mayonnaise, mustard, 2 tablespoons olive oil, lemon zest, chopped rosemary, garlic, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper together in a bowl until sauce is smooth.

  • Cook salmon on the preheated grill until fish flakes easily with a fork, 5 to 10 minutes. Serve sauce alongside cooked salmon.

Cook's Note:

Salmon can be made with or without the skin attached.

This fish was so easy and so amazingly good. I had three 8.5 oz. fillets so I just mixed up the marinade in a measuring cup and poured a little bit onto each fish while in sitting on their sheet of foil. I then sprinkled the Old Bay salt and ground pepper some minced garlic and the teaspoon of capers topping each with two lemon slices and a sprig of garden fresh rosemary. I then sealed all edges well into a pocket leaving room for the steam to expand. I also let the fish marinate in the foil packets for 30 minutes before cooking. I only made half the sauce since I could only get a tablespoon of lemon zest from my two lemons but it was plenty for us. I just added about a teaspoon of minced rosemary and teaspoon of olive oil a tablespoon seemed a bit much for our taste. I wasn't sure I'd like the sauce but boy it sure was wonderful on the fish. I really wouldn't want to smother the fish with it since the fish was so refreshing even without it. We cooked on gas grill at 400 for 16 minutes and ate them right in the foil packets. This is going on our summer grilling rotation. Read More

The whole family loved it!! I rubbed the dry seasoning on salmon fillets and let them sit about 15 minutes. Mixed up the lemon juice white wine & olive oil and poured it over the fish. Grilled it in the foil packets about 10-12 min and it was literally the best salmon I ve ever made! Read More
