Spice Rubbed Tinfoil Salmon

I will say, as a pescatarian, fish is one of the only meats that I cook and I've always been a bit hesitant to approach this one. I feel like fish is one of those things to either easily overcook or undercook and it's hard to get the fish just right. Salmon is one in particular that I had a hard time making.
