Alaskan Salmon on the Barbie

BBQ Alaskan Salmon

I know you are asking yourself Salmon on the Barbecue? And that is what I first Thought too. The truth is you can't cook fish any better than this!

We have tried several different fish on our Barbecue and actually found that frozen Salmon found at Costco is the best we have tasted! We have tried fresh fish from our local Stater Bros., Albertson's, Von's, you name it and have found that the Frozen Salmon at Costco is the best.

You will need foil, fish of course salmon is preferred but you can use Mahi Mahi or any other fish you might like, Lemons, Garlic Salt, and any other seasoning you might want to try. Lat bu not least your Barbecue.


Thaw out the salmon, it takes about 3-4 hours depending on how warm your house is.

Pull out 3-4 pieces which feeds a family of 4.

1 piece can feed either 1 or 2 people depending on how hungry you are.

  • Pull out a piece of aluminum foil approx 16 inches long.
  • Put a small dab of butter on the foil along with some garlic salt and any other of your favorite seasonings.
  • Place each salmon on top of the butter and seasonings.
  • Place another small dab of butter on top of salmon along with some lemon juice and other seasonings of your choice.
  • Heat up your Barbecue to medium to medium low.
  • Once you have done all of this fold the foil over the part where the salmon is, fold it over one more time.
  • Fold the sides in, then continue to fold up the foil with the fish in it until it is wrapped up good and tight!
  • Place your pieces of fish on the Barbecue and set your timer for 7 minutes.
  • After 7 minutes, turn over fish and continue to cook for 8 minutes.
  • After 8 minutes, turn fish over one more time for 7 more minutes.

Once timer goes off your fish should be cooked through, nice and flaky!

We usually fix wild rice or some other type of rice dish with it.

Well hope you like our way of cooking Salmon on the Barbecue!

Yeah Honey!

Gonna throw some salmon on the Barbie for us???

You know this entire family just loves it when you cook. Nothing beats your grilling, except my marinated steak, but your steak and lime tacos come close.

What a great idea this is, and thanks for sharing everything!

We gotta' have salmon at least 1-2 times per week. Sometimes, I marinade it in teriyaki mixture and broil. I agree with you, the ones from Costco are great!

Great new look! Grilling, beach scenery! It's summer here!!!

God bless.
