Place one salmon fillet onto a sheet of aluminum foil. Season it with salt and black pepper and top with 1 slice of lemon dill compound butter (see note 2) and a sprig of fresh dill. Wrap well so there are no holes. Repeat with the rest of the fillets.
Transfer the packets onto a pre-heated grill, skin side down. Cook on medium-high (without turning) for about 12 minutes or until ready (see note 5).
When ready, remove packets from the grill and let them cool down a bit before serving.
Serve with a lemon wedge (optional) and side of your choice.
If you can, buy salmon fillets that are similar in size, so they are all cooked at the same time.
See the full recipe here: Lemon Dill Compound Butter. If you don’t want to make it, you can top each fillet with finely chopped fresh dill, lemon zest, lemon slice and a tablespoon of butter.
Cooking time may vary depending on the heat in your grill and also on the thickness of the fillets. Our salmon fillets were done in 12 minutes.
The amount of seasoning you add will depend on your taste. I like to season them well as I normally use unsalted butter. If you use salted butter, you will not need as much.
The minimum internal temperature should be 145°F/65°C. Make sure to check the temperature at the thickest part of the fish.
