This easy grilled salmon can be prepared with either salmon steaks or fillets. The dill, garlic, and lemon act as a marinade and a basting sauce.
You'll need a gas grill, charcoal grill, or stovetop grill pan for this recipe.
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 with a side green salad. A minted pea puree is an excellent vegetable dish with salmon.
Gather the ingredients.
Place salmon in a shallow, nonreactive dish.
In a separate bowl, combine marinade ingredients of lemon juice, lemon zest, vegetable oil, dill, and garlic. Stir to combine. If you don't have fresh dill, dried dill can be used.
Pour marinade over salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
Remove the salmon from the marinade and set aside.
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.
