Grilled Citrus Salmon Packets

If you’re my uncle, grilling season never ends. But for some of us, it’s time to switch over to all those fall comfort foods we love! But before you go switchin’ up the menus, you’ve got to try these Grilled Citrus Salmon Packets. Enjoy this with some rice or grilled garlic bread, and some fresh veggies from the garden or farmer’s market. These days there is plenty of harvest, which typically drives down the prices at the farmer’s markets!

Labor Day weekend food fare, perhaps?
