Dilly Salmon Recipe

This moist and tender salmon fillet is marinated in a tangy dill sauce. The attractive entree comes from Karla Sprague of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:8-12 servings


  • 1 cup Dijon mustard
  • 2/3 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 salmon fillet (1 inch thick and 3 pounds), cut in half widthwise


  • 1. In a small bowl, whisk the mustard, wine, brown sugar, vinegar and soy sauce until well blended. Gradually whisk in oil. Stir in dill and pepper. Place salmon in a shallow glass dish. Pour 2 cups marinade over salmon. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for basting.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Place salmon skin side down on grill. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5 minutes. Baste with some of the reserved marinade. Grill or broil 7-9 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork, basting occasionally. Yield: 8-12 servings.

"This one is a keeper at our house. I didn't have fresh dill but thought with what I used it still tasted great."

"This was delicious. I also put aside some extra marinade to use as sauce at the table. I cooked the fish under the broiler as I did not want to stand outside in the cold rain. It came out perfect! I will definitely make this again."

"I love this recipe! I think the marinade tastes so good that I make extra and use it as a sauce. My favorite way to serve it is with rice and baby carrots. Sometimes I pour a little of the marinade on the baby carrots too. Yummy!
