4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon zest

Combine lemon juice, zest, oil, dill and garlic in a large re-sealable bag. Add salmon and turn to coat. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Preheat grill. Remove salmon from bag and place on hot grill. Brush salmon with marinade from the bag. Grill salmon for about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove when done. Salmon should be light in color and flake easily through the thickest part.
