Parchment Grilled Salmon with Lemon and Dill

Salmon on parchment paper squares with lemon and fresh dill

I got some wild salmon from the market and wanted to try my hand at grilling it on our new gas grill. I’ve never manned (womanned?) a full-sized grill before (only my dear cast iron grill pan!), so Dino supervised to make sure I didn’t blow anything up.

I didn’t want to worry about the fish sticking, so I decided to try a parchment method that I read about a while back. It worked out really well, and I didn’t even break the grill!

Parchment Grilled Salmon with Lemon and Dill

  • Author: Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen - Ashley Covelli


Cooking salmon in parchment paper on the grill is a great way to enjoy a seafood dinner without worrying about it sticking to the grill!




  1. Preheat grill to medium.
  2. For the salmon, cut 2 squares of parchment paper, a few inches larger than your fillets. Place 3 lemon slices on each, and top with the salmon, skin side down. Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper, and top each with 2 sprigs of dill.
  3. Once the grill has reached 375-400°F, turn one of the burners off for indirect cooking. Place the salmon with the parchment squares on the side of the grill that is off, and close the lid. Let the salmon cook until it reaches your desired degree of doneness (it took ours about 10 minutes for medium-rare). Enjoy!

    Hi Ashley,

    This was the best salmon recipe ever!

    My husband cooked the salmon on the BBQ and started off high, then turned it down a bit. He cooked the salmon for 2 minutes then flipped the salmon over back onto the lemon slices for another 4 minutes.

    The salmon was ridiculously moist absolutely delicious.

    With the winter coming, plus would like to share with others who do not have a BBQ, can you adapt your instructions to bake the salmon in the oven?

    This was such a treat, we have never BBQ with parchment paper!

    Thanks for your help on sharing great recipes during these extraordinary times!
