Mesquite Salmon

Ingredients

1 pound Salmon steak, (or filets)
1/2 cup Lemon juice
2 tablespoons Olive oil
2 teaspoons Black pepper
1 teaspoon Dill weed
1/2 cup Mesquite wood chips

Preparation

1
Soak mesquite chips in water (or wine if you can spare it) for 1 hour. Mix lemon juice, olive oil, pepper and dill weed in a bowl. Add salmon. Let sit in refrigerator for 1 hour. Preheat grill with mesquite chips in an iron smoker box or wrap them in aluminium foil and pierce holes all around.
2
Drain marinade from salmon and boil for 2 minutes. Put the fish on the grill and apply remaining marinade periodically. If cooking filets, grill for 3-4 minutes on each side, checking for doneness. If cooking steaks, grill for 6-7 minutes. Use a meat themometer to test. Internal temperature should be around 160 degress.
