Grilled Lemon & Dill Salmon

One of my favorite fish is salmon because of the hearty texture and flavor. It's also a great fish that takes on both sweet and savory flavors really well. I prepared this dish for our Christmas Eve dinner and served it over a bed of fresh spinach with sliced almonds, crumbled goat cheese and a raspberry pomegranate vinaigrette. I loved this light salmon dish because it allowed me to use some of the fresh dill, thyme and parsley I have growing in my Aerogarden too!
