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 (and we all know how well salmon and lemon go together).

With addition of asparagus, these foil packs make grilling a salmon dinner a breeze. Cooking the packs over high heat will help to sear the fish while generating enough steam to fully cook the salmon and the asparagus. Your salmon will cook slightly faster if your pieces are thinner, but you can check for doneness by piercing a sharp knife into the fish in the foil. If the fish is flaking and light pink then you'll know your salmon is done.

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.
