Lemon Grilled Salmon

This tender and flaky fish is wonderful to serve to family and friends. A savory marinade that includes dill gives the salmon mouthwatering flavor and since it can be grilled or broiled, you can enjoy it all year round! —Aelita Kivirist, Glenview, Illinois

    6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons snipped fresh dill or 3/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 salmon fillet (1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 1 small lemon, thinly sliced
  • 2 onion slices, separated into rings

Directions

  • Sprinkle dill, lemon-pepper, salt if desired and garlic powder over salmon. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the brown sugar, broth, oil, soy sauce and green onions; add salmon. Seal bag and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour, turning once.
  • Drain and discard marinade. Grill salmon skin side down, over medium heat; arrange lemon and onion slices over the top. Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Editor's Note: Salmon can be broiled instead of grilled. Place the fillet on a greased broiler pan. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 6-8 min. or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
