Citrus Salmon en Papillote

Ingredients:
6 orange slices
6 lime slices
6 salmon fillets (4-6 oz each)
1 lb fresh asparagus, trimmed & halved
Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions:
Oven Method:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Cut parchment paper or heavy-duty foil into six 15×10 inch pieces; arrange three orange and three lime slices on one side of each sheet. Top with fish and asparagus. Spritz with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and parsley. Drizzle with lemon juice.
Fold parchment paper around fish and crimp the edges to seal; place on baking sheets. Bake until fish flakes easily with a fork, usually 12-15 minutes. Open packets carefully to allow steam to escape.
Grill Method:
Preheat grill to medium-high heat – lightly oil grill grate to prevent sticking. Cut heavy-duty foil into six 15×10 inch pieces; arrange three orange and three lime slices on one side of each sheet. Top with fish and asparagus. Spritz with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and parsley. Drizzle with lemon juice.
Fold foil around fish and crimp the edges to seal. Place on grill grate and cook until fish flakes easily with a fork, usually 12-15 minutes. Open packets carefully to allow steam to escape.

Grilled Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Ingredients:
2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons soy sauce
4 ½ teaspoons firmly packed brown sugar
¾ teaspoon ground black pepper
½ cup finely chopped fresh rosemary
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 package (of two) boneless pork tenderloins – about 2.5 pounds
Salt to taste

Directions:
Remove silver skin and excess fat from the tenderloins.
To make the balsamic-rosemary marinade, in a food processor, combine the vinegar, olive oil, soy sauce, brown sugar and pepper and pulse until blended.  With the motor running, drop the rosemary and garlic through the feed tube and continue to process until fairly smooth.
Place the tenderloins in a glass baking dish and pour the marinade over them.  Cover and let stand at room temperature, turning occasionally, for up to 2 hours.
Preheat grill for medium-high heat.  Remove the tenderloins from the marinade, reserving the marinade.
Grill the meat over direct heat.  Turn the meat every 4 to 5 minutes and baste with the marinade for up to 5 minutes before the meat is done until cooked to your liking, about 20 minutes total for medium (slightly pink at the center and juicy) (140 degrees internal temperature).
Transfer the tenderloins to a carving board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.  Carve into slices across the grain and at an angle to the cutting board.  Season with salt.  Serve the tenderloins hot, warm or at room temperature.
Serves 4 to 6

Grilled Fish Pointers

CRISSCROSS  If you are grilling a fillet with the skin on (common for salmon, bass and snapper), make shallow crisscross slices – about 1/8 inch deep – into the skin with a sharp knife.  This will prevent the fillet from curling as it cooks.

SKIN SIDE DOWN Always grill a fillet with the skin side down first to ensure the skin is well browned and crispy before the fillet is fully cooked.  To prevent sticking, clean and grease the grate before heating and brush the fillet with oil.

FLAKE TEST Follow recipe timings. Check doneness at the minimum cooking time by inserting a fork into the fish and gently twisting. (Typically, for each inch of thickness, a fillet requires about 10 minutes of cooking time over medium-high heat.) Properly cooked fish is opaque with a flaky texture; overcooked fish will be tough outside with dry, mealy flesh.
