The easiest way I know to do salmon...

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Using aluminum foil, create an oblong cooking tray (approximately 13 inches by 8 inches by 2 inches) to be placed directly on grill.
  3. Place salmon fillet in center of tray.
  4. Season first with garlic salt, sprinkle with brown sugar, and then cover with pieces of butter.
  5. Top with sliced red onions.
  6. Pour beer of choice into tray to just below the highest point of the fillet.

  8. Place tray on grill, cover with lid, and grill for approximately 8 minutes or until just cooked through.

This was an interesting recipe. I never thought to mix beer and salmon before. I wasn't wowed by this recipe, but I have an inkling that if I try a different (better) beer the taste will probably be better. I'll definitely try it again.

My husband and I both love salmon anyway, however, this recipe is the top on our list and very, very easy and quick! Definitely will be making this recipe again soon!
