Weeknight Wednesday: Salmon with Lemon, Capers, and Rosemary

Many of the recipes I post out here take some time to prepare, cook or both. As many of us (myself included) do quite a bit of work night cooking, I have decided to occasionally highlight those quick recipes on Wednesdays.

A quick dinner on the grill does not mean hot dogs.

Creating foil packets is a great way to cook more delicate items on the grill.

Salmon with Lemon, Capers, and Rosemary

Prep Time: 20 M | Cook Time: 10 M | Servings: 2 servings (Scaled) | Difficulty: Easy


2 (6-ounce) salmon fillets
1/8 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
4 lemon slices (about 2 lemons)
1/8 cup lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
1/4 cup Marsala wine (or white wine)
2 teaspoons capers
2 pieces of aluminum foil


Brush top and bottom of salmon fillets with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and rosemary. Place each piece of seasoned salmon on a piece of foil large enough to fold over and seal. Top the each piece of salmon with 2 lemon slices, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of wine, and 1 teaspoon of capers. Wrap up salmon tightly in the foil packets.

Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Place the foil packets on the hot grill and cook for 10 minutes for a 1-inch thick piece of salmon. Serve in the foil packets.
