I love Salmon as you already know and this is an easy one to make. It’s basic comfort food at its finest. I love the cool & creamy dill sauce as it’s the perfect compliment to this dish. The bacon adds another layer of flavor & a touch of savory to it. out.
Well, I hope you enjoy.

How to Make Grilled Salmon w/Dill Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare you dill sauce and set in refrigerator till ready to serve.
  2. Rinse your salmon fillets with water and pat dry. Now place them flat in a shallow baking dish and pour the lemon juice over them and refrigerate for 10 minutes to marinate them. Turn them once while in the marinade.
    Meanwhile, begin to steam your potatoes and peas. Cook up your bacon and crumble.

    [Do not let the fish sit any longer than 15 minutes in this lemon marinade or else you will ruin the fish. I have done and let it sit for 1/2 hour and all you could taste was lemon. It was terrible!]
  3. Remove your fillets from marinade and lightly coat with your olive oil. Cook salmon 4-6 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of your fillet.
  4. Place your steamed veggies in a bowl and mix with 1 tbsp. of butter, salt and pepper and add your bacon. Now, place your fillets on top and pour your dill sauce over them. Garnish with lemon slices and a sprig of dill.
