  • 4 4-5 oz salmon steaks
  • 1-2 lemons sliced
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon pepper
  • 1/2 onion sliced
  • 8-16 garlic cloves crushed whole and peeled
  • 2 lbs asparagus cut into 2 to 3-inch pieces
  • 4-8 pieces of tin foil about 20-inches long


  1. On 4 pieces of tin foil, place a couple slices of lemon. On top of lemons, place salmon steaks.

  2. Spread butter on salmon.  Sprinkle lemon pepper equally over each salmon piece.  Add 2 cloves of garlic to each and a couple pieces of onion.  Top with 1-2 slices lemon.

  3. Place asparagus pieces on each side of salmon steaks.  Add butter and one clove of garlic to each side (on top of asparagus).

  4. Wrap (seal) each tin foil into a pouch.  If cooking over the fire, double wrap with an additional piece of tin foil.

  5. Cook directly over hot coals in a fire pit for 15-20 minutes or bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees until salmon is cooked through.  Unwrap and enjoy!
