..of the tender deliciousness breaking apart.

Everything is wrapped together with foil.

In order to grill salmon in foil..

..we recommend that you wrap the salmon in foil with all the flavors you desire.

Wrap your salmon with heavy duty foil..

..make a pocket for it, and don’t wrap it too tightly.

There should be room inside the foil for the aromas to work..

..into the moisture and cook into your salmon.

Make sure your grill is preheated as well.

Also, by wrapping it in foil you ensure that the meat is evenly cooked..

..and none of the parts are overcooked.

In this way, the salmon retains its juiciness and its flavors are preserved.
