The magic of this Lemon-Dill Grilled Salmon Recipe lies in its ingredients. We start with four succulent salmon fillets, each about 6 oz, which are the canvas on which we’ll paint our flavors. A drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of salt and black pepper lay down the base notes, while fresh lemon juice and zest add a zesty punch that’s quintessential to Mediterranean cuisine. Minced garlic brings in depth while fresh dill adds an aromatic freshness that ties everything together beautifully. And let’s not forget the white wine vinegar – its acidity balances out the richness of the salmon and brightens up all other flavors.

Now let’s dive into how to grill salmon with lemon and dill! Start by gathering all your ingredients and cookware – organization is key here! After washing and patting dry your salmon fillets, set them aside as you prepare your marinade in a large bowl with olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, chopped dill, and white wine vinegar. Once your marinade is well mixed (and smelling divine), coat each salmon fillet thoroughly and let them marinate for at least 30 minutes. This is when the flavors really start to infuse. Then, it’s grilling time! Preheat your grill or grill pan over medium heat, place each marinated salmon fillet on it, and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side. Once your salmon flakes easily with a fork, you know it’s done!
