Foil Wrapped Salmon

Dish: Other
Dish Type: Seafood
Cooking Method: Grilled
Difficulty: 1 / 10
Servings: 1 per packet
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 - 25

  • 1/2 cup - fresh spinach
  • 1/2 cup - green onion, fresh mushrooms, tomatoes
  • - Raspberry Vinigerette Salad Dressing
  • - salt, pepper and garlic salt
  • - Non-stick cooking spray
  • - can add sliced black,green olives or other veggies of choice

Spray foil square, large enough to fold over salmon filet and seal, with non-stick cooking spray.  Place salmon filet skin side down on foil.  Chop spinach, and other veggies and place on top of salmon.  Salt , pepper and garlic salt to taste on top of all veggis and salmon.  Top off with raspberry vinigetette dressing, with enough to moisten salmon and veggies.  ( Your preference).  Fold foil over salmon and seal packet.  Place flat side down on grill; grill for about 20 minutes.  Remove from grill, open carefully and check for doneness.  Salmon is done when flaky when stuck with a fork.  If not cooked, reseal and return to grill for another 5 minutes.  Do Not overcook.

Increase amounts based on number of salmon fillets served.



This recipe is easy, quick and low in fat.  The dressing takes away a lot of the fishy taste of salmon.

This is absolutely delicious. I didn't have raspberry vinigrette, so I substituted red wine vinigrette. The salmon stays moist, and clean-up is a breeze. EXCELLENT!
