Salmon is the best grilling fish ever. There are a few different types of salmon to choose from including: Atlantic, Sockeye, Pink, Coho, and King (Chinook). However the United States prohibits fishing for salmon. That’s why the ones you’ll find in American supermarkets are farm-raised. Either way it’s super nutritious, 4 oz of salmon contains about 236 calories, 15 grams total fat, 3.5 grams saturated fat, 63 mg cholesterol, and 413 mg potassium.

BBQ Salmon

A 4oz portion of grilled salmon in foil also contains 0 carbs, 0 fiber, and 23 G protein. As well as calcium, iron, vitamin b-6, magnesium, vitamin C, and cobalamin. All I use to marinate 3 lbs of salmon is 2 small bunches of fresh parsley, 2 tbsp lemon juice, 3 tbsp olive oil, and 3 tsp minced garlic. Also 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 1 tsp paprika, and 1 tsp apple cider vinegar. 

Making this grilled salmon in foil is so easy on the BBQ grill. First I like to marinate it by combining the fish with the lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, the garlic, the parsley, oil, and the seasoning in a large bowl or zip lock bag and marinate in the refrigerator for 3 or more hours. When you’re ready to cook it set it out of the refrigerator if room temperature for 10 minutes. This helps it become crispier on the outside. 

Preheat the grill to medium (or 375 degrees F). Next slice the salmon into individual portions about 6 oz each. Wrap each one in foil and drizzle any leftover marinade juice on top of the fish. Close the foil right and set the grilled salmon in foil directly on the grill and close the lid. Grill the salmon for 8 minutes. Flip them over and grill again for another 8 minutes. Allow the salmon to rest for 5 minutes before servings.
