Salmon

I am beginning to learn why people are so ga-ga over grills. Today, I stopped at Wegmans, which carries a $6 a bottle Shiraz that I like (SilverGum). I had  gone food shopping just a few days ago and wasn't planning on buying much else, but I did see a nice piece of salmon, so I brought it home. Usually, I cook it in my oven, but tonight I decided to try grilling it outdoors.

I preheated the grill for fifteen minutes and oiled it. Then I made a mixture of mayonnaise, lemon juice, fresh dill, salt, and pepper to brush onto the fish.  I cooked it approximately 5 minutes on a side. Not only was it ridiculously quick and easy, but also it was perfect: nice little grill marks, moist and tender fish, and best of all—NO SMELL IN THE HOUSE.

I had started new potatoes boiling when I first started the grill, and they were perfectly cooked by the time the salmon was done. These, plus some leftover grilled veggies, created a delicious dinner in less than half an hour. (Sorry--I ate the fish before photographing it.)
