- 1 lb salmon fillet, skin on
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp dried dill
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat (around 375-400°F).
In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, dried dill, salt, and pepper.
Brush the mixture over the flesh side of the salmon fillet, making sure to coat it evenly.
Place the salmon filet skin-side down on the grill and close the lid.
Grill the salmon for 10-12 minutes, or until the flesh is opaque and flakes easily with a fork. (Note: Cooking time may vary depending on the thickness of your salmon fillet.)
Once the salmon is fully cooked, remove it from the grill and carefully open the foil packet. Use a spatula to transfer the salmon to a serving platter, discarding the skin if desired.
Serve hot, garnished with fresh herbs or lemon wedges if desired.
