How I love grilled salmon! It is so versatile and can go into so many recipes from tacos, to pastas or just grill it up on the barbecue. This recipe takes sauteed sweet onions and grills them right on top of the fish to pack a tasty punch to your salmon. You’re probably looking at the photo thinking “That’s way too many onions” and I probably would too. However by using sweet onions over red or yellow, it takes on a whole new flavor and it’s not “onion-y” at all.
Now, we eat salmon often. It’s so good for you and it is a very easy fish to cook or grill. This foil pack recipe is great for the grill and for camping since you don’t have to worry about cleaning a grill or using another skillet.
We have made this numerous times since we eat salmon at least once a week. Salmon is an excellent source of vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium. It is a good source of niacin, omega-3 fatty acids and protein. It also helps to aid in proper cardiovascular health, correct muscle and tissue development, boosted eye health, and efficient body metabolism. And I know that as I have gotten older, I can use all the help I can get for my metabolism!
I also found this to be an excellent meal to cook over the campfire. Camping is a favorite summer activities for many couples and families. I know I enjoy the fresh mountain air when I’m camping. This is one you can wrap in heavy duty foil and cook right on the grill above the campfire. Makes for an easy clean up too and I’d rather be star gazing then cleaning dishes.
