Dill Sauce Help

I plan on grilling some Salmon tomorrow when the heat wave finally breaks. I really want to do some sort of Dill sauce with perhpas some garlic, onion, etc., but need a recipe. Got one to share?
Thanks

Here is the one I use. It doesn't have garlic or onion, though.

Dill Sauce for Salmon

1 TB mayonnaise
1 TB lemon juice
½ tsp. Dijon mustard
½ tsp. dried dill

This makes just enough for two 6-8 oz. filets, but can be easily multiplied.

I've never used dill with salmon, but with perch I use 1 stick of melted butter, 1 Tbsp dill weed and 2 Tbsp lemon juice, simply mixed and poured over the fish after cooking. When grilling salmon over hardwood charcoal I just marinate in a bit of lemon juice and sprinkle with garlic powder - then brush with EVOO before grilling.

Bill, one <i>extremely</i> easy and good alternative I often use is as simple as this: Chop fresh dill. Stir it into plain yogurt to taste. Dollop on salmon.

When I want to yup it up just a bit, I might whisk a little olive oil and a dash of lemon juice into the yogurt, dose it with salt and pepper or a homeopathic shot of Sriracha or Cholula chile sauce; maybe add a whiff of garlic by smashing a garlic clove and rubbing it all over the bowl before I put the yogurt in.

But the short story is that yogurt and chopped fresh dill make a great combination with salmon, whether you add other flavorings or not.

Robin beat me to it - yogurt and chopped fresh dill with a little lemon juice does an excellent job.
