Dress up grilled salmon in a dash with store-bought, refrigerated dill dip.
large salmon fillet (about 2 pounds)
tablespoon vegetable oil
cup dill dip
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Place fish on 24-inch piece of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Brush fish with oil; sprinkle with pepper. Wrap foil securely around fish.
Cover and grill fish 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 20 to 30 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork.
Mix dill dip with milk until smooth. Serve salmon with dill sauce.
Fish usually takes about 10 minutes to grill for each inch of thickness. Add more time if the fillet is thicker. If you have 2 thinner pieces, grill them for slightly less time.
Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids, a nutrient which is thought to reduce the risk of heart disease.
For the safest possible picnic, remember that perishable food should be consumed within two hours (one hour if the outside temperature is over 90°.)
