Recipe Ingredients:

1 frozen Alaska Salmon side (1.5 to 2.5 pounds)
Heavy duty aluminum foil (18-inch wide)
Olive oil cooking spray
Light olive oil

Asian Seasoning:
2 tablespoons white miso
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon chopped chives
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Salt to taste (just before serving)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high (400°F | 205°C).
  2. Spray-coat dull side of aluminum foil (18-inch wide sheet, cut 4-inches longer than salmon side).
  3. Rinse any ice glaze from frozen Alaska Salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel.
  4. Brush both sides of frozen fish with oil and place on foil (skin side down). Bring long sides of foil together and fold over several times to seal; roll up short ends to form a packet. Place packet, seam side down, onto grill grate and cook 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Remove packet from grill, open, and add seasoning of choice (see more options below). Crimp loosely to close, and return to grill (seam side up). Cook an additional 8 to 10 minutes just until fish is opaque throughout.

Makes 4 servings.

2 tablespoons chopped canned chiles in Adobo sauce
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1 teaspoon brown sugar, packed
Sea salt to taste (just before serving)
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley or cilantro (just before serving)
