  • Summary

    Grilled Salmon in Foil couldn't be any easier or more delicious, making it a perfect weeknight meal or impressive enough to serve guests. This easy tutorial on How to Grill Salmon in Foil eliminates all of the guesswork and delivers gloriously juicy salmon by first bathing the salmon in a tangy, sweet and spicy Cajun honey mustard marinade, sealing the fish in foil, then grilling (or baking) until flaky tender in about just 15 minutes. The steam-cooking that occurs on the grill guarantees that your fish is beautifully moist and tender with slightly smoky undertones; no flipping the salmon and no worrying about it sticking! I’ve included all the best tips for how to know when salmon is finished cooking, what temperature to cook salmon to, what to serve with salmon, and more!  Finish off this effortless Grilled Salmon dinner with a side of watermelon feta salad and loaded potato salad for the perfect summer meal.
