BBQ Salmon with Lemon and Dill

I get tired of the same old barbecued foods. I can only eat so many hamburgers and hot dogs…even steak get’s old. I like to switch it up every now and then with a nice fillet of salmon. 

Living on the west coast, we get some beautiful, fresh salmon, and I take advantage of that. I tend to buy the freshest piece I can, but you can totally use frozen salmon as well.

I don’t like to mess around with the salmon. I love the fresh flavour, so I just try to enhance it. Fresh lemon and some dill, little butter and some pepper – that’s all you need to create this delicious BBQ salmon.

BBQ Salmon with Lemon and Dill

What you will need:

  • 1 salmon fillet*
  • 1 lemon; sliced
  • 1 tsp. dried dill; or fresh
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • pepper to taste

*You can use any size fillet you like*

Heat your BBQ to 400 degrees F.

Place your fillet of salmon on a doubled up piece of tin foil. I like to turn the edges up to make a little tin foil dish.

Season salmon with pepper, and dot the flesh with the butter. Sprinkle the dill on top and add a lemon slice to each dollop of butter.

Place on the BBQ and cook until the salmon flakes away with ease. Depending on size anywhere from 15 – 25 minutes. 

Serve with whatever side dishes you like. I usually go for wild rice and roasted veggies.

BBQ Salmon with Lemon and DillSalmon is loaded with healthy fats, and is a great alternative to the traditional BBQ foods. In my house, we try and eat fish at least once a week, and this is my go to recipe. I like to make salmon sandwiches with the left overs, or you could use the left overs and make salmon cakes.
