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

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. Yield: 6 servings.
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.

"I thought this was great. Just asked my husband, who is now on a heart-healthy diet following a double angioplasty, "How's the salmon?" He replied, "Effin' excellent!" I guess we'll be having this more often! I doubled the marinade ingredients (both the rub and the sauce) as a couple of reviewers suggested, and refrigerated the fillet in the marinade for about three hours. The dill in my garden is mostly gone to seed but I did get enough dill fronds to make the rub, then before grilling I sprinkled a bit more dried dillweed over the fish. I'd forgotten to buy green onions so I just added a couple more slices of regular onion to the marinade."

"I have used this since it first came out in the "Taste of Home" magazine many years ago. Wonderful flavor. I DO double the marinade ingredients, however, for more coverage as the fish marinates in the dish or bag. My children have greatly enjoyed the teriyaki flavor and the lemon slices provide a great presentation."

"I have been searching for a great Salmon recipe....and this is definitely IT!!! The brown sugar adds just a hint of sweetness and my neighbors and family really loved this flavor! The dill is not overpowering, and adds a distinct flavor to the salmon. AWESOME RECIPE and easy to prepare!!!"
