  1. Preheat grill for medium heat.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan; stir onion, Worcestershire sauce, and paprika into the melted butter.
  3. Arrange four squares of aluminum foil on a flat work surface. Place a salmon steak in the middle of each piece of foil. Roll edges toward the salmon to make miniature pans and pour about 1/4 of the butter sauce over each steak.
  4. Carefully set 'pans' onto the hot grill and cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes.

I use one sheet of aluminum foil and roll up the edges to just contain the steaks, rather than making four separate pans. This also works with just using a salmon fillet. Directions should say....Melt butter in a saucepan; stir in onion, Worcestershire sauce, and paprika into the melted butter and saute until onions are tansluscent.

I just used one sheet of tin foil, turned out great! The middle pieces of salmon did seem a bit dry though. Very good recipe!
