A traditional Seder family dish this grilled lemon and dill salmon is our favorite way to cook fish in the summer. Nice and light and with the appropriate "secret sauce" (recipe coming later) this recipe is a total home-run on a hot summers day. Super simple and allows the fish to shine on it's own, I highly recommend you give it a try! Plus if you don't have a grill handy, you can always bake this in the oven.
1 1/2 pounds of salmon
12 springs of fresh dill
1 tsp. dried dill
1 tbsp. of olive oil
1 tsp. sea salt
1 tsp. ground pepper
In a dish, brush olive oil over fish until well coated.
Sprinkle dried dill and half of the fresh chopped dill evenly over the fish.
Add salt and pepper.
Squeeze half a lemon over the fish. Let sit for 30 minutes.
On a medium high grill place salmon, flesh side down (skin up) and let cook for 5 minutes.
After 5 minutes, remove salmon from heat.
Turn heat down to medium.
Place foil on the grill and fold up all four edges to make a ‘boat’. Place salmon inside the foil boat skin side down. Add juice from the remaining half lemon. Let cook for 8-10 minutes.
Just before removing from the heat, add the remainder of the fresh dill to salmon (2-3 prior to removing from heat).
Garnish with lemon and enjoy!
