(Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times)

For many of us, summer doesn’t officially commence until we fire up the grill. This is the season of outdoor parties and cookouts, as those of us self-professed grill masters and weekend warriors deftly show off our live-fire cooking skills ... Read more

Total time: 20 minutes | Serves 4
  • 4 (6-ounce) center-cut salmon fillets
  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh dill
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Lemon wedges, for serving

Step 1Pat the salmon fillets dry to remove all excess moisture.

Step 2Make a dill spread: In a bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, dill, a generous ½ teaspoon salt, or to taste, and several grinds of black pepper. Brush the spread over the salmon fillets on all sides.

Step 3Heat a grill over medium-high heat until hot. Place the fillets flesh-side down on the grill. Grill for about 6 minutes on one side, rotating partway through for good grill marks. Flip the fish over and continue grilling, skin-side down until the fish is cooked to desired doneness, about 6 minutes more.

Step 4Remove to a platter and serve garnished with lemon wedges.
