Grilled Mustardy Salmon

My summer officially began Friday morning around 10:45.  I celebrated by making a stop at the salon, watching an episode of Grey's Anatomy, and reuniting with my old friend, white wine.  Yesterday I spent the day driving home, making a quick stop in Iowa City to pick up some salmon, and then sat around and watched my mom cook dinner.  

I insisted on using the grill since I don't have the opportunity to grill in Minneapolis, and I also insisted on using some kind of mustardy sauce.  My mom happily obliged and dug out this tasty recipe for the fish.  

2 tbsp chopped fresh dill
2 tbsp whole-grain dijon mustard
1 tsp grated lemon rind
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground red pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb. salmon filet 

Here lies our Coho salmon sans the skin that my mom skillfully sliced off.  

Combine the first six ingredients in a bowl.  Add a little oil if it's too thick.  Brush it on the fish and fire up your grill.  Or oven.  Or microwave.  Not. 

Grill it on each side for maybe 3-4 minutes.  It was deeeeeeelicious.
