Salmon with Lemon-Dill Butter Ingredients


1. Preheat your grill to medium heat. Clean and oil your grill grates to prevent sticking.

2. In a small bowl, combine the softened butter, fresh dill, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Mix well until all the ingredients are fully incorporated. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Set aside.

3. Pat the salmon fillets dry with a paper towel and brush both sides with extra virgin olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Once the grill is hot, lay the salmon fillets skin side down on the grates. Close the lid and cook for about 4-5 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of your fillets. Remember, the salmon is ready when it flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to overcook it, as it can dry out.

5. As the salmon cooks, spread a generous dollop of lemon-dill butter sauce on top of each fillet. The heat from the grill will melt and infuse the butter into the fish, releasing an irresistible fragrance.

6. Use a spatula to carefully transfer the cooked salmon fillets to a serving platter, taking care to keep the skin intact. Allow the fish to rest for a couple of minutes to ensure optimal juiciness.

7. Serve immediately, garnished with a handful of fresh dill sprigs and a drizzle of lemon juice for an extra burst of freshness.
