Lemon Dill Salmon
Tip: A word on food quality. The quality of your meal depends on the quality of your ingredients. Try to find fresh or wild caught salmon when possible.
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 25 min
Total Time: 35 min
Serves: 2-3, depending on salmon size
*A typical serving of salmon is ~6 oz
~1 lb wild caught Salmon fillets or steaks
2 tbsp butter
¼ cup fresh dill
¼ cup yellow onion, diced finely
1 lemon (½ lemon for cooking, ½ for squeezing on the salmon when served)
Salt & Pepper
•Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
•Sauté the butter (but reserve a little bit to smear in the bottom of the baking dish), onion, dill, juice from ½ lemon, salt & pepper. Let it cook on a low heat for a few minutes, until the onion is translucent.
•Meanwhile, take the tiny bit of the butter that you reserved and rub it in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch baking dish. Rinse the Salmon & pat dry with a paper towel. Place salmon in the baking dish, skin side down.
•Pour the butter, onion, dill, & lemon mixture over the salmon. Bake for 20-25 minutes. When the salmon is done, it will flake easily with a fork.
•Serve with lemon wedges.
