Grilled Salmon with Lemon and Dill


  • 4 salmon fillets (about 6 ounces each), skin-on
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Lemon wedges for serving


  1. Preheat Grill:
    • Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Prepare Salmon:
    • Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. Season both sides with salt and black pepper.
  3. Make Lemon-Dill Marinade:
    • In a small bowl, mix together olive oil, chopped dill, minced garlic, lemon zest, and lemon juice to create a marinade.
  4. Marinate Salmon:
    • Brush the salmon fillets with the lemon-dill marinade, ensuring they are well-coated. Allow the salmon to marinate for at least 15-30 minutes to let the flavors infuse.
  5. Oil the Grill:
    • Before placing the salmon on the grill, lightly oil the grill grates to prevent sticking.
  6. Grill Salmon:
    • Place the salmon fillets on the preheated grill, skin-side down. Grill for about 4-6 minutes per side, or until the salmon easily flakes with a fork and has nice grill marks.
  7. Baste with Marinade (Optional):
    • Optionally, baste the salmon with some of the leftover marinade during the grilling process for added flavor.
  8. Check for Doneness:
    • Salmon is cooked when it flakes easily but is still moist in the center. The internal temperature should reach 145°F (63°C).
  9. Serve:
    • Carefully remove the grilled salmon from the grill and transfer it to a serving platter.
  10. Garnish and Serve:
    • Garnish the Grilled Salmon with additional fresh dill and lemon wedges. Serve hot.

  • You can also use a grill pan on the stovetop if a grill is not available.
