1 pint grape tomatoes, quartered

2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley 

2 tablespoons capers, rinsed and chopped 

2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil 

2 garlic cloves 

Zest and juice of 1 lemon 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Six 4-ounce salmon fillets 

Prepare a grill for medium heat.


  1. In a medium bowl, combine the tomatoes, parsley, capers, oil, garlic, lemon zest and juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  2. Season the salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. Place each salmon fillet on a sheet of aluminum foil and top with a few tablespoons of the tomato mixture. Fold the foil sheets into packets. (If making this recipe in advance, store the packets on a baking sheet in the refrigerator until time to grill.)
  3. Place the packets on the grill and cover. Cook 10 to 12 minutes for medium.
