Last weekend my husband and 11 year-old son went on a camping trip with the scouts, so I had a sleepover at my house and invited four of our girls cousins over. So that makes seven girls, including my three girls. The moms, my sister and my mom came over and I make them this salmon on our grill and it turned out perfect. Some of them had some fresh corn on the cob and garlic bread with it and it made for a really good meal. We figured the girls wouldn’t want any, so we ordered pizza for them. My girls tried a little and liked it, but not better than pizza. It’s hard to compete with pizza. Kind of ironic I made it while my son and husband were gone, because they both love fish and probably eat it twice a week and they both love to fish, partly because they love to eat the fish.
After dinner we all walked to the park and played Pokemon Go, which I totally don’t get, but if it makes my children walk and ride their bikes more, it can’t be all that bad. What do you think of Pokemon Go? Is that even how you spell it?
If you like this grilled salmon recipe, you will probably love my oven-baked lemon crusted salmon recipe here. It’s one of the most popular recipes on my blog and could probably be grilled similar to this recipe and turn out just great. I also bet this goes well with other types of fish. I would love for some of you to tell me if you try this with other types of fish and tell me how it turned out. Click on the following link if you want other Paleo salmon recipes.
This Paleo salmon only has a few ingredients and cooks up in less than 30 minutes.
On a flat surface, lay out two pieces of foil (12” long each) with the pieces overlapping in the center. Place the salmon in the center of the foil.
In a mixing bowl, stir together the butter, garlic, cilantro, bell pepper, salt, lemon, and honey. Spoon the mixture over the salmon so that the fillet is fully covered. Fold the longest ends of foil over the salmon. Roll up the two ends of foil so that the salmon is completely enclosed in a packet.
Place the Foil packet on a grill heated to medium. Cover the grill with the lid and let cook for 12-15 minutes. Salmon will be firm and flake easily when done. Carefully remove packet from grill, open packet, and slice. Serve!
