Steps

  • 1 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Cut 4 (18x12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Place salmon piece on center of each sheet. Brush 1/2 tablespoon oil over both sides of each salmon piece. Sprinkle each piece with 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Place about 3 lemon slices flat or overlapping on each piece.
  • 2 Bring up 2 sides of foil over salmon so edges meet. Seal edges, making tight 1/2-inch fold; fold again, allowing space for heat circulation and expansion. Fold other sides to seal.
  • 3 Place packets on grill over medium-low heat. Cover grill; cook 13 to 16 minutes, rotating packets 1/2 turn after about 7 minutes, until salmon flakes easily with fork.
  • 4 To serve, cut large X across top of each packet; carefully fold back foil to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle with parsley.
