Salmon with Lemon, Capers, and Rosemary

Omega-3!  That seems to be all the rave nowadays.  But why is it good for you?  And what does Salmon have to offer?

Preparation Time: 30 minutes

• 4 (6-ounce) salmon fillets

• 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
• 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary leaves
• 8 lemon slices (about 2 lemons)
• 1/4 cup lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
• 1/2 cup Marsala wine (or white wine)
• 4 teaspoons capers
• 4 pieces of aluminum foil

1.  Brush top and bottom of salmon fillets with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, and rosemary.
2.  Place each piece of seasoned salmon on a piece of foil large enough to fold over and seal. Top the each piece of salmon with 2 lemon slices, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of wine, and 1 teaspoon of capers.
3.  Wrap up salmon tightly in the foil packets.

4.  Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill.
5.  Place the foil packets on the hot grill and cook for 10 minutes for a 1-inch thick piece of salmon.
6.  Serve in the foil packets.
