Wash and dry one of the lemons. Cut into slices.

Cut 4 sheets of double-thickness wide aluminum foil. Butter the inside with a brush.

In a frying pan, sauté onion in a little oil. After a few minutes, add vinegar and cook for 5 minutes more.

Place a little of this mixture on each sheet of foil. Place a fillet of salmon on top of the mixture and top with lemon slices.

Grate the zest of the orange and squeeze the orange and the second lemon. In a pan, reduce juice by half. Pour juice into the foil parcels and sprinkle with ginger and coriander. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add a few olives and some Canadian Provolone cheese. Close the packages and place on the grill**. Cook for about 15 minutes.
