  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Spray a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray and place salmon in the middle of the foil.
  2. Whisk maple syrup, Creole seasoning, salt, and pepper together in a bowl; brush onto salmon. Sprinkle butter chunks over salmon. Fold aluminum foil over salmon, sealing the edges together.
  3. Cook on the preheated grill until salmon flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.

I really enjoyed this recipe. Maple and salmon, it's like a match made in heaven. I made it exactly as written. I did, however, cut and individually wrap the salmon pieces. I grilled them over medium heat for 5 mins per side, then I moved them over to indirect heat for the remaining 5 mins - total of 15 mins. Next time I will only grill for 10-12 mins. While there is nothing "smokey" about this recipe, it is very tasty and I will definitely make it again. One pound of salmon for 2 people makes VERY generous servings. I prefer to cut a pound into 3-4 pieces. Also, no need to oil grate (!?) since the salmon is not directly on grate. Thank you, wendi!
