DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse salmon and pat dry. Remove any bones that are sticking out.
  • Rinse limes.
  • Put 3/4 cup mayonnaise in medium bowl.
  • Cut limes in half. Ream juice of limes into bowl.
  • Mix with whisk or fork until smooth, taking care to remove any seeds that get in the bowl. If necessary, add more mayonnaise until mixture is consistency of a smooth, fairly thin cream sauce WITH NO LUMPS.
  • When mixture is smooth, add dill to taste. Crumple between fingers before adding to release extra flavor. Add salt to taste. Mix until dill and salt are evenly distributed.
  • Add salmon to mayonnaise-lime mixture.
  • Prepare a nonstick frying pan: spray with non-stick cooking spray and place on stove over medium-high heat.
  • When pan is hot, carefully place salmon in pan. (If you are doing more than two steaks, you may need to do this in shifts, two at a time.) With a pastry brush, brush additional mayonnaise-lime mixture over the top surface and sides of the salmon periodically.
  • When salmon is opaque about halfway through and lightly browned (about 2 to 4 minutes), brush salmon once more and flip.
  • Brush sides a few more times, then allow to cook through (about 2 to 3 more minutes.) Salmon is done when opaque and firm all the way through the thickest part.
  • Remove salmon from pan and serve while very hot!
