Beer Salmon

A short time back I promised a salmon recipe and here I am to deliver. Before I do, let me just banter on a bit about how "behind" I feel. I need to clean the pool this weekend so that I can close it and prevent a forest full of trees from dumping their leaves into it. Besindes that, I have like a million other things to do and I have to deal with contractors giving me the runaraound and my own procrastination and it all sucks.

Here now, the absolutely delicious...Beer Salmon.

1 (12-inch) tail piece salmon fillet (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 teaspoons garlic salt
3 tablespoons brown sugar
4 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1 (12-ounce) bottle beer

Preheat grill to medium-high heat. (This can also be cone in the oven on a cookie sheet - preheat to 525 degrees.)

Using aluminum foil, create an oblong cooking tray (approximately 13 inches by 8 inches by 2 inches-or an aluminum tray covered with aluminum foil does work as well) to be placed directly on grill.

Place salmon fillet in center of tray. Season first with garlic salt, sprinkle with brown sugar, and then cover with pieces of butter. Top with sliced red onions.

Pour beer of choice into tray to just below the highest point of the fillet.

Cover tray with aluminum foil to envelope fish completely.

Place tray on grill, cover with lid, and grill for approximately 8 minutes or until just cooked through.
