Savory Salmon – Lemon-Dill Marinade Sauce

  • View

Cooking and eating fish that you caught that day is a real treat! As long as it’s cooked properly, the smell is sweet, the flavors are rich, and the meat is succulent. Here are a few salmon recipes for your next fishing trip. They are simple to fix but very tasty. Of course you can use these at home on fish from the market too. But it won’t taste as good as when you cook your fish fresh from the sea.

Also Needed:
1 large (2-gallon) zip lock bag (or more, depending on how many fillets you’re cooking)
Cooler with plenty of ice
Good quality charcoal briquettes (do NOT use lighter fluid)
Small wire grill
Heavy duty aluminum foil



Lemon-Dill Marinade:


    Step 1

    Make the marinade just before you leave to go fishing. If going for longer than a day, mix just prior to marinating fish. Place all ingredients in a zip lock bag, seal, and mix until evenly distributed. Store in cooler.

    Step 2

    Place fillets in marinade in plastic bag, seal, and store in cooler for 30 minutes to 1 hour. (Do not marinate too long or fillets may start to deteriorate. Always marinate in a cold container.)

    Step 3

    Make a small fire with charcoal.

    Step 4

    Once coals are hot-- ashen white-- place fillets skin side down on grill, brush or drizzle with marinade, and cover with a tent of aluminum foil. (The foil acts like a lid, allowing fish to cook on both sides at once)

    Step 5

    With the grill about 3 inches over the coals, cook the fillets for about 15-20 minutes. When the meat flakes, the fish is done. Overcooking will dry out the fish and compromise its flavor.


    Serve hot and enjoy. Enjoy your fishing and good eating!
