Campfire Salmon…but without the campfire
April 1, 2012 1 Comment
It was rainy, cold, and we were just about out of gas for the grill. So this is what we did.
2 lb salmon fillets, cut into two equal portions
1 T olive oil
2 T lemon juice
1 T dried tarragon
salt & pepper
Preheat your broiler to high, and place the rack at the second highest setting. Place each salmon portion skin-side down on a large piece of heavy duty aluminum foil. Rub salmon with oil and lemon juice, then sprinkle with tarragon, salt and pepper. Wrap seasoned salmon loosely in the foil, and broil on high for 15-20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with fork.
You can also do this on the grill for closer to 10 minutes, or you can throw them on the coals of a campfire. This is just how we made this salmon last Friday.
