This easy grilled salmon can be fixed with either salmon steaks or fillets. The dill, garlic, and lemon marinade flavors the salmon then acts as a basting sauce.

Grill the salmon on an oiled gas or charcoal grill, or cook the fish in a stovetop grill pan. 

Plan to let the salmon marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours before cooking. This makes a fabulous meal with hot cooked rice or simply serve the fillets with a salad. A pea puree is an excellent vegetable dish with salmon.

What You'll Need

  • 4 salmon steaks or fillets
  • For the Marinade:
  • Juice of 2 lemons (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill (chopped) or 1 teaspoon dried dillweed
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)

How to Make It

Place salmon in a shallow, non-reactive dish. Combine marinade ingredients; pour over salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours. 

Remove the salmon from the marinade and pour the marinade into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Grill salmon directly over medium coals, basting with the boiled marinade, for about 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily.
