Catch it yourself or buy it from the store a fresh fish filet cooked over the fire is an excellent meal. The salmon in today’s recipe is also packed with Omega-3, potassium, vitamin b and protein too mention a few. A veritable health cornucopia.


  • 1/2 bottle good quality Italian vinaigrette or fish marinade
  • 1 large salmon fillet – enough for 2 people
  • vegetables – peppers, onions, and mushrooms – enough for 2 people


  1. Cut salmon into two pieces to make it easier for serving later.
  2. Chop up vegetables into slices or strips. Use enough peppers, mushrooms, and onions to make a good-sized side dish for two people.
  3. Place two large sheets of heavy-duty aluminum foil on the table. Fold up the sides so the marinade doesn’t run off the sheets.
  4. Place salmon fillet on top of the foil. Cover fish with marinade. Then cover fish with vegetables.
  5. Carefully wrap fish and vegetables in foil to make a packet. Use more foil if necessary. Pinch the edges of the foil packet so the marinade doesn’t leak out.
  6. Place foil packet on grill over roaring fire or hot coals.
  7. Turn packet over every 10 minutes or so.
  8. Depending on the size and thickness of the fish – and how hot your fire is – cook the fish at least 20 minutes.
  9. Remove packet from grill. Carefully peel or slice it open. Remove fish and vegetables and serve on plates.
