Our Easiest Grilled Salmon Recipe – Teriyaki and Dill

Teryaki Dill Salmon

Here’s our favorite, and definitely our easiest, grilled salmon recipe. My friend’s dad made it for me YEARS ago and I have made it ever since. It has even been a hit with friends who “don’t eat fish”. You only need two ingredients in addition to the salmon, and measurements don’t at all need to be precise. Slap some teriyaki and dill on it and it’ll be great!


  • 1 pound salmon fillets or steaks
  • 2-3 tbs teriyaki sauce – we use “Mr. Yoshidas”
  • 2-3 tbs fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbs oil


Here is a great tip for grilling fish in general: Lightly oil the grill grate – pour oil into a small bowl. Fold a piece of paper towel into a small rectangle and use tongs to dip it into the oil, then wipe it onto the grates.

  1. Preheat your grill for medium heat.
  2. Place salmon flesh side down on the grill (skin side up) and cook for 6 minutes.
  3. Flip the salmon, then use a brush to spread about 1 tbs of teriyaki on top – you just want a light coat. Close the grill lid and continue to cook until the salmon is done . When it is done it will flake apart easily with a fork and be opaque (or check for 145 degrees with a thermometer).
  4. Once the fish is fully cooked, turn the grill off and brush the fish again with more teriyaki. This time you want to coat it well and try to get as much as you can on the fish.
  5. Remove the salmon from the grill and sprinkle the chopped dill all over the top of the salmon. You really can’t use too much dill.
