Stay Healthy Grilled Salmon and Sweet Corn in the Husk


  • 2 cuts wild caught salmon (or however many you plan to serve)
  • Local white sweet corn (1 ear of corn per person)
  • Spices for salmon (I like a Cajun flavor, so sprinkle mine with cumin, crushed peppers, paprika, and lemon pepper)
  • 2 lemons to squeeze over salmon


  1. Peel husk back from corn without tearing off completely. Remove all silk, and replace the husk. Wrap in foil to be placed on the grill for 40 minutes
  2. Heat grill to at least 350 degrees, place prepared corn wrapped in foil on grill and cook for 40 minutes, turning with tongs at halfway point. Remove from the grill. The corn will continue to steam in the husk while the salmon is cooking
  3. Sprinkle the Salmon with seasonings or spices of your choice and place on the grill skin side down. Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until fork tender. Be careful not to overcook the salmon, otherwise it will yield a dry fish
  4. Place fish, cut lemon wedge, and sweet corn on each plate. Enjoy!
