Lemon Dill Barbecued Salmon

Only a barbecue can herald the warming of weather, the glint of sunlight upon water and the festive air that only summer can bring.

What better dish to make for a balmy BC day than barbecued salmon.

The slight smoky taste infuses the fish, and the searing heat creates the perfect exterior while keeping the inner flesh moist and flakey.

Do not leave the lemon juice on the fish for more than half an hour, as the base cooks the meat on its own and can cause it to go mushy.
