One of our favorites to put on the grill is salmon. Here’s a simple BBQ salmon recipe that will be sure to encourage you friends to come over on the weekend for good eats and company whether you are watching the race or hanging out in the back yard.
There are many health benefits to having a fish like salmon along with your other backyard fair, but the bottom line is salmon tastes great and can be served with many side dishes.
- One whole fresh salmon, cleaned, head and tail removed
- Four onions
- One lemon
- Dill, dried
- 1½ cup of dill pickle juice
- Dill pickle
- Wash the salmon thoroughly and pat it dry. Take aluminum sheet and cut it into four strips. They should be big enough to cover the fish. Lay down two sheets horizontally, and then cross them with two vertically lined sheets. Curl the sides of the aluminum sheet up, so as it give it a pan effect. The sides should be of the same depth as the salmon. Place this foil on a cookie sheet.
- Cut the onion into rings. Place some of the rings on the foil, so as to create a bed for the salmon. Apply mayonnaise on one side of the salmon. Place the salmon, mayonnaise side down, on the onion rings. Now, open the salmon and apply the mayonnaise on its insides. Place some onion rings inside the fish, and the remaining ones on the top of the salmon.
- Pour lemon juice as well as the pickle juice all over the salmon. Cut the dill pickle into thin slices and place them on the top of the salmon. Sprinkle dried dill on the entire length of the salmon. Cover the salmon with another sheet of aluminum foil.
- Preheat the bar-be-que. Place the salmon inside and cook for about 15 minutes. The fish should turn light pink in color. Your bar-be-que salmon is ready to eat.
