"The mayo coating keeps the fish lovely and moist. You may use dried dill about 1 teaspoon but fresh is much better. The hot oven cooks the salmon quickly and doesn't allow the fish to dry out. One lemon is usually has enough juice for the recipe."

This is fantastic!! This is now my favorite way to enjoy salmon fillets. The sauce is so tasty, I had extra leftover so I drizzled it over the salmon just before serving it. The salmon turn out perfectly moist and juicy.

I doubled it to feed 4 of us. I put them on aluminum foil that I sprayed with PAM, then cooked them on the grill over indirect heat. They came out moist, and pink in the middle, which is how salmon is supposed to be cooked. We all loved it and my company and wife complimented me on the fish. The dill and lemon combination is a real nice touch for the fish!
