Grilled Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce

I love anything grilled, its vegetable, poultry, fish or cheese. Grilling is a form of cooking that involves dry heat applied to the surface of food, commonly from above or below. I am using a stovetop grill pan for this recipe. As we all know, Salmon is a popular food. Classified as an oily fish, salmon is considered to be healthy due to the fish's high protein, high omega-3 fatty acids, and high vitamin D content. An interesting fact about salmon is that they are born in fresh water, migrate to the ocean, and then return to freshwater to reproduce.

I am serving this yummy 20 minutes recipe with layered onion sweet corn rice and tandoori grilled vegetable. You can have it with any set of grilled vegetable of your choice.
