  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Mix brown sugar, sea salt, lemon-pepper seasoning, and seasoned salt together in a container. Coat halved fillets with mixture. Place salmon on 2 to 4 aluminum foil sheets; drizzle with olive oil and liquid smoke. Fold the tops of the pieces of foil together, leaving the sides open. Tent the foil for heat circulation.
  3. Place foil packets on the preheated grill and cook until salmon is easily flaked with a fork, 15 to 25 minutes, opening foil during the last 5 minutes to lightly brown.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You can also bake these in a 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 15 to 25 minutes. Time depends on fillet thickness.
