Gluten-free Salmon & Potato Foil Packets

Dinner for two (or three, or more).  Salmon is a good source of protein (especially for those avoiding red meat); high in vitamins and also contains Omega-3 Fatty Acids – beneficial to both body and brain.

These deliciously tender and tasty Salmon and Potato Foil Packets are naturally gluten-free.
