Grilled Salmon with Avocado Dip

The cool avocado dip really went well with the warm, grilled salmon. Our salmon had skin on one side so we didn't flip the fish and kept it on the grill longer.

2 avocados - peeled, pitted and diced
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
3 tablespoons Greek-style yogurt
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
2 pounds salmon steaks
2 teaspoons dried dill weed (this seems like a lot but it's not!)
2 teaspoons lemon pepper
salt to taste

Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate.
In a medium bowl, mash together avocados, garlic, yogurt, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper.
Rub salmon with dill, lemon pepper, and salt. Place on the prepared grill, and cook 15 minutes, turning once, until easily flaked with a fork. Serve with the avocado mixture.
