2 tsp. snipped fresh dill or 3/4 tsp. dried dill
1/2 tsp. lemon-pepper seasoning
1/2 tsp. salt, optional
2 cloves fresh garlic, minced (or 1/4 tsp. garlic powder)
1 – 1  1/2 lb.  salmon fillet  (I like wild-caught sockeye best)
1/4 cup  packed brown sugar
3 T. chicken broth
3 T. vegetable oil
3 T. soy sauce
3 T. finely chopped green onions
1 small lemon, thinly sliced
2 onion slices, separated into rings

Directions
Place salmon in a glass baking dish (9×13).  Sprinkle dill, lemon-pepper, salt and garlic over salmon.  Combine the brown sugar, broth, oil, soy sauce and green onions; pour over the salmon.  Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or more, turning once. Drain and discard marinade.  Place salmon, skin-side down, on a cookie sheet on a heavy duty piece of foil and arrange lemon and onion slices over the top. Grill the salmon on the foil over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until fish is flakey.  Transfer to a serving platter and serve.
