Instructions Checklist

  • Combine cherry tomatoes, olive oil, shallot, tapenade, salt, basil, thyme, and pepper in a bowl; mix well.

  • Lay out foil on a work surface, shiny side-up. Place each salmon fillet skin side-down in the center of a piece of foil. Cover each piece of salmon with 1/4 of the cherry tomato mixture. Fold up the edges of the foil over the salmon to create a parcel, making sure to seal the edges well.

  • Turn down the heat of the grill and carefully place the foil parcels on the grate. Close the cover and cook until salmon is pale pink in the center and flakes easily with a fork, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove parcels and let them sit for a few minutes before opening.

Cook's Notes:

Instead of tapenade, you can use pitted black olives.

You can prepare the salmon foil parcels a few hours before cooking them; just keep them in the fridge until you put them on the grill

You can also bake the parcels in the oven if it isn't barbeque weather. Bake them at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) until salmon flakes easily with a fork.

I also added some fresh chopped oregano to the mix and used more tomatoes and olives than the recipe called for. Cooked for 11 minutes and came out very tasty. Read More
