Since Monday's theme was all about simple recipes, I figured I would stick with that through the week. This is another very easy recipe and if you leave out the sauce (although I don't know why you would) it only uses three ingredients. Okay, okay, I lied, because you have many more ingredients in the seafood dry rub, BUT, if you made that in advance when using it on it's on in another mean.. AND, you have some leftover, it truly is only one ingredient :) And let's say you don't have the dry rub or don't want to use it... that's perfectly okay. Use your favorite seasoning on this and viola! A simple dinner is created!

- Serves 1 -
1 6oz piece of salmon
1/2 - 1 teaspoon homemade seafood dry rub
1 1/2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
For the sauce -
2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dill
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat grill to 350 degrees F. Tear a large piece of aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Place the salmon on the foil skin side down. Sprinkle the dry rub evenly over the fish and then smear on mayonnaise. Fold sides of foil together forming a packet around the fish. Grill 10-15 minutes or until the fish flakes evenly with a fork. You'll want to rotate the packet at least once during the cooking time. Carefully remove from grill and allow to rest 3 minutes.
Mix all the ingredients for the sauce together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Serve along side salmon and enjoy!
