Grilled Salmon with Orange Slices & Red Onion

Grilled Salmon with Orange Slices & Red Onion


  • 2 salmon filets (I used frozen that were partially defrosted by the time they went on the grill)
  • olive oil, salt and pepper (I used Omnivore’s Salt)
  • 1/2 orange, sliced into thick rings, then cut in half
  • red onion, thinly sliced

    Preparation Instructions:

    1. Prep your grill. (We used a charcoal grill.)
    2. Tear two long pieces of foil (about 20″ each) and place a salmon filet in each.
    3. Drizzle the salmon with olive oil and sprinkle liberally with salt and pepper.
    4. Layer the onion on top, then the orange slices.
    5. Tightly seal the foil around the salmon to create a little pouch.
    6. Place the salmon the prepared grill. If using charcoal, wait until the charcoals have turned completely white and then put the lid on it to dampen the heat a little. If you’re using a gas grill, you want a medium heat.
    7. Grill on each side for 5 minutes, just until the salmon is cooked through.
    8. Serve, with the onions and oranges on the side, and drizzle the juice from the foil on top of the salmon. I recommend a great pinot noir to go with it!
