1. Prepare a mixture of onion, garlic, lemon juice, dill, pepper, tarragon and oil.
2. In a shallow dish, arrange salmon in a single layer. Pour on the onion mixture and allow to refrigerate, covered, for about 1 to 2 hours. Turn salmon halfway through for even marinade coating.

3. Take out the salmon and allow to be barbecued for 4 to 5 minutes on medium heat at a distance of 6 inches from heat so that salmon’s center turns opaque. Keep basting with the marinade throughout barbecuing time.

4. Serve hot.
