Dinner: Salmon and Herbs in Foil Packets (recipe below) with Fire Roasted Vegetable Salad
- Tin foil
- 4 Tbsp olive oil
- 4 Tbsp butter (half a stick)
- 4 salmon fillets
- 2 lemons, sliced
- 4 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 4 sprigs of dill
- 4 sprigs of tarragon
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 shallot, sliced
- salt and pepper
Place each fillet on a sheet of tin foil. Sprinkle salt and pepper and spread a tablespoon of mustard over each fillet. Layer two lemon slices, a sprig of tarragon and dill, a tablespoon of butter and olive oil, and a bit of garlic and shallot on each salmon filet. Bring the sides of the foil up around the salmon to create a closed packet. Put the packets directly in your campfire or on a grill. Cook for 8 minutes and check for done-ness. The salmon should easily flake with a fork.
