Grilled Salmon is famous for a reason – its celebration of health and taste at the same time. In my opinion, omega-3s rich seafood should be cooked with less oil and lots of citrus and that’s what I am show casing in today’s recipe – Salmon wrapped in foil and grilled with lots of citrus flavor- lemons and oranges, and fragrant with thyme and garlic. As you cut open these foil pockets (keep your face away from escaping steam) citrus aroma with garlic and thyme hits you and make your palette salivating to bite into it.

This recipe is perfect for tailgating or Sunday family cookout. Keep the salmon foil pockets ready and just grill’em before serving. Perfect lite, healthy and entertaining idea whether you’re on your own lawn or a parking lot.
