Salmon anyone?

Here is another great recipe that I found on

Grilled Basil & Lemon Salmon with Tomatoes & Asparagus

Butter substitute like I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter or 1/2 stick softened butter
1 bunch of fresh basil, finely chopped
1-2 lemons, sliced
3-4 Roma Tomatoes, diced
Fresh Asparagus
Salmon Fillets – if you have a large slab of Salmon, slice it into portions as they will be served
Fresh Ground Pepper
Mix the chopped basil into the softened butter and set aside
Lay out foil for each serving of Salmon you plan to make – foil should be about 12-15 inches in length
Place salmon in the center of the foil
Put about a tablespoon of the basil butter mixture on top of salmon and press down slightly with a spoon along the top of the salmon sprinkle with pepper
Place 2-3 lemon slices on top of butter mixture
Add 3 asparagus stems to the packet (rub butter mixture on top of asparagus for extra taste)
Sprinkle about 3 tablespoons of the diced Roma Tomatoes on top of lemon layer
Salt to taste and grind fresh pepper on top
Pull top and bottom of foil up and roll down until it seals in the center. Fold over the sides several time toward the center to seal and form the foil packet.
Place on medium heat grill for 10-12 minutes (in oven cook 20-25 minutes at 375°)
Open steaming packets carefully and enjoy!
Sides: Salad or brown rice.

For the rice, we love using the different types of Uncle Ben's 90 Second Rice

If you do the recipe, comment me and let me know how it was, and if you changed up the recipe to make it your own.
