TAKE ONE FILET OF SALMON LAY ON TO TIN FOIL AND CURL UP THE EDGES TO MAKE A BOAT. THAN SPRINKLE A DASH OF SALT AND PEPPER ON TO ENTIRE FILET. LIGHTLY COVER FILET WITH BROWN SUGaR (OPTIONAL) NOW COVER THE FILET GENEROUSLY WITH RANCH DRESSING. ( I LIKE HIDDEN vALLeY©) hEAT UP GRILL TO 350° AND PLACE TIN FOIL AND FILET ON RACK. COOK FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES COVERED. pERIODICALLY CHECK THE HEAT KEEPING IT CLOSE TO 350° AND THE FISH BY USING A FORK AND SEEING IF THE FILET FLAKES OPEN.
you can use any left over salmon from the grill, baked, or canned. remove all bones and crumble into a bowl. add mayonnaise to desired creaminess. next add 1/2 to full pack of lipton© onion soup mix to your taste. spread on crackers and enjoy.
for a little added flavor try adding a chunk of smoked salmon to your spread.
