  2. Grill salmon and thick lemon slices on hot grill until salmon flakes easily with a fork, 3 to 5 minutes per side.

Cook and stir the mixture until boiling and thick, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat. Stir quartered lemon slices, dill, salt, chervil, and cayenne pepper into the sauce. Serve with the grilled salmon and grilled lemon slices.
