I live in Alaska and this grilled salmon in foil recipe goes over great at our barbeques. It's so simple to make and with a nice side of steamed asparagus or other vegetable, it looks top-notch when served.

Instructions Checklist

  • 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.

  • 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.

This was really simple and good. My salmon was thick and it only took a total of 15 minutes. For the last 5 minutes of cook time I took them out of the foil and straight on the grill to get some good grill marks. Read More

This recipe was so simple and very delicious. Everyone wanted to know where I bought the Salmon. I said it's not where I bought it that made it so good it's the recipe that I followed. They couldn't believe that brown sugar was part of the glaze. I didn't have liquid smoke so I used Wam. It gave it a little kick. Very tasty will make again. Read More
