There's a certain list of classics for the grill. Ribs, obviously, in that classic Southern BBQ way with sauce brushed on over and over again, or burgers, with a dad-bodied guy flipping patties until they are charcoal-like hockey pucks. However classic the classics are, we find salmon to be a protein of the most grill-worthy stature. Here, the delicate fish is lightly charred and served with a lip-smackingly good sauce of lemon, dill, cucumber, and yogurt. Even less on the list of grill classics, but still deserving is carrots: These get a savory bath of butter, garlic, and lemon zest after their grilling for extra flavor. Classics, shmassics.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  • Chicken 165° F |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Peel, trim, and cut carrot into steak fry-sized sticks. Mince garlic. Zest lemon, halve, and juice. Finely chop cucumber or grate on largest holes of a grater. Squeeze cucumber to remove excess liquid. Reserve two dill tops for garnish and mince remaining dill (no need to stem). Alternatively, mince all dill for garnish. Pat salmon fillets dry, and season flesh side with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Carrot

    Place carrot sticks on a double layer of foil, and add 2 Tbsp. water, 2 tsp. olive oil, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Wrap foil around carrot sticks, forming a pouch. Keep carrot sticks flat to cook evenly. They do not need to be in a single layer.

  3. 3

    Grill the Carrot

    Place foil packet on grill. Grill 5 minutes on each side. Remove from grill, keep closed, and set aside.

  4. 4

    Grill the Salmon

    Lightly coat grill with cooking spray. Add salmon, skin side up, to hot grill and cook until lightly charred, 4-6 minutes. Flip, and grill until salmon reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-6 minutes. Remove to a plate, cover with foil, and set aside.

  5. 5

    Finish Carrot and Make Sauce

    Lightly coat grill again with cooking spray. Remove carrot from foil and grill until lightly charred, 2-4 minutes. Remove to a mixing bowl and toss with butter, half the garlic (reserve remaining for sauce), and lemon zest (to taste). In another mixing bowl, combine yogurt, cucumber, dill (reserve a pinch for garnish), remaining garlic, 1 tsp. lemon juice, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

  6. 6

    Finish the Dish

    Place salmon on a plate and top with sauce. Garnish with dill tops. Serve carrot alongside.
