Lemon Garlic Grilled Salmon In Foil

Grilled Salmon Recipe

If you love seafood and BBQs you have to try this recipe for grilled salmon in foil. I like to make a little marinade for the fish and set it for a few hours ahead of time.

  • standard grill


  • 1 Lbs salmon boneless skinless
  • 2 small bunches of fresh parsley 
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 3 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tsp paprika
  • 1 Tsp Apple cider vinegar


  • Combine the salmon 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. 
  • Allow the salmon to sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  • Preheat your grill to medium (about 375 degrees F). 
  • Cut the salmon into 6 oz portions approximately 
  • Put the salmon pieces in individual portions of foil.
  • Drizzle any marinade from the bag on top with the fresh parsley. 
  • Wrap the foil all the way around the salmon 
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet (large enough to hold your piece of salmon) with a large piece of aluminum foil. If you prefer your food not to touch the foil directly, lay a piece of parchment paper on top (be sure none of it pokes out when the packet is sealed).
  • Set the foil wrapped salmon on the grill, close the lid, and grill for about 8 minutes.
  • Flip it over and grill again for another 8 minutes. 
  • Allow the salmon to rest for 5 minutes before servings.
