Carefully run your finger up the center of the fillet (against the grain) and if you find any pin bones, pull them out with a small pair of needle-nosed pliers.
Pat the fillets dry and set aside.
In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and lemon juice.
Add sesame oil and dill weed, if using.
Lightly spread most of the mayo mixture on both sides of the fillets. Set aside the extra mayo to serve.
Heat the grill (or grill pan) to medium heat or medium-high heat if using a grill pan or copper sheet.
Place the salmon on the grill, skin side down and grill for 3-5 minutes.
Turn fillets over and cook another 3 to 4 minutes depending on how thick they are. (I had thick pieces with skin, so turned them several time and got all sided nicely browned and mayo melted.)
Sprinkle with parsley and dill, if desired, to serve.
Tips & Variations
- If you don't want to grill directly on grates, you may want a grill pan or copper grilling sheet.
