Foil Pack Grilled Salmon with Lemony Asparagus

Grilling fish can be a totally daunting process. Worrying about cooking it correctly and not tearing apart the delicate fillets can bring unnecessary stress to your cookout. Let this recipe and a little bit of tin foil save you from that aggravation.

Making foil packs, not only keeps your fish from sticking to your grill grates but it also creates a mini oven, where all the added ingredients cook and combine to make a flavor bomb. These packs combine salmon, asparagus, butter and lemon to create a light and easy meal that is perfect for any cookout.

You could serve these right out of the foil or you could use a bit more foil and make some campfire potatoes or make some simple grilled corn.
