Whisk together oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, dill, salt and pepper; pour into shallow dish. Add salmon, turning to coat. Cover and refrigerate, turning occasionally, for up to 30 minutes.

Remove salmon from marinade, reserving excess. Place salmon, skin side down, on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once and basting frequently with reserved marinade, just until opaque throughout and fish flakes easily when tested, about 10 minutes per 1 inch (2.5 cm) of thickness.
