Grilling is my secret weapon. It makes even a so-so cook like me look way better.
My other secret is using aluminum foil pouches. The beauty of foil pouch grilling is—other than an occasional flip—you can leave your food unattended with little risk of over-cooking.
It’s good. It’s tasty. And the clean-up is a breeze.
One of my favorite meals is marinated sesame seed salmon, Yukon Gold potatoes and onions, served with a side of grilled asparagus. Preparation time for all three of these is about 15 minutes. Total grilling time is about a half an hour. It’s the perfect pull-together-fast meal for any night of the week!
These recipes work great on gas or charcoal grills. The key is to do your set up in a way that allows you to place the pouches of aluminum foil over indirect heat. An inside temperature of around 400 degrees works best.
Ingredients for Marinated Sesame Seed Salmon
Notes: This is excellent chilled the second day! It also can be used in salads.
Ingredients for Yukon Gold Potatoes and Onions
Notes: This should serve 4 people. You can use any potato you like for this recipe. Red potatoes will work fine. I like the golden color of the Yukons next to the plated salmon.
Ingredients for Grilled Asparagus
Notes: I like to do these in tin foil pouches of about 10-12 spears each so you may have more than one foil pocket based on the number of servings you make.
