No salt, no sugar Memorial Day recipes — more salmon in foil

The recipe calls for baking these, but I think they would be tasty on the grill too. An outdoor gas grill is just an oven by another name, after all. Try them outside.

Grilling salmon in foil for Memorial Day is hardly a new idea, I’ve written about my take on it here  in the past. But I have a chef crush on Giada De Laurentiis, so when I saw the Food Network send me one of her salmon-wrapped-in-foil recipes, I had to click through to it.

Place salmon on the lemon and coat with lemon-infused olive oil and spices.
Salmon in foil, my take with lemons.

It sounds good with Italian overtones — tomatoes, lemon juice, oregano. I’m adding it to my salmon medley of grilling.

Here are the ingredients, as always leave out the salt:
4 (5 ounces each) salmon fillets
2 teaspoons olive oil plus 2 tablespoons
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tomatoes, chopped, or 1 (14-ounce) can chopped tomatoes, drained
2 chopped shallots
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried thyme

The recipe calls for baking these, but I think they would be tasty on the grill too. An outdoor gas grill is just an oven by another name, after all. Try them outside.
