- 1 salmon fillet 1 1/2 - 2 pounds

- 1 1/2 teaspoons tarragon
- 2 cloves garlic finely minced
- 1 yellow squash thinly sliced
- 1/2 lb asparagus trimmed
- 1 cup grape tomatoes sliced in half
- 1 lemon very thinly sliced
- Preheat grill to 400 degrees. You are going to place this over indirect heat so heat the gas or charcoal grill with that in mind.
- Line a sheet pan with foil and coat the foil with cooking spray. If salmon still has skin on it place skin side down.
- In small bowl melt butter; stir in tarragon and garlic. Brush salmon with butter mixture. Top fish with lemon slices, squash, asparagus and grape tomatoes. Cover with another large piece of aluminum foil and roll bottom foil and top foil to seal. Place on pit over indirect heat and cook for approximately 25-30 minutes or until salmon flakes easily when tested with a fork. A meat thermometer should register an internal temperature of 140 degrees. Remove from foil and discard lemon slices. Spoon off any fat that has cooked to the surface. Sprinkle with a touch of tarragon.
