Salmon A La Bjork

When I visited the Bjorks in 1990 Larry made his special salmon concoction, as follows. It requires a good California white or rosé and maybe a cold pasta salad.

  • 4-6 lbs. fresh salmon, skinned and boned
  • 3 large tomatoes
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 stick butter
  • ground black pepper
  • lots of dill
  • aluminum foil and an outdoor barbecue grill

Make a "boat" out of the aluminum foil, large enough for the salmon steak(s). Slice the tomato, onion and butter onto the salmon and sprinkle with black pepper, then cover with a layer of dill.

Wrap the whole thing in a double layer of foil. Put it in a barbecue over white coals for about half an hour, flipping the whole package once, after about 20 minutes.

Break open and serve. Serves four.
