Recipe: Lemon Dill Salmon

Lemon Dill Salmon

For the longest time, I was afraid of cooking fish. Then I realized it’s actually quite easy to cook and bake. Today, I’m sharing one of my go-to fish dishes — a lemon dill salmon recipe. I like to serve this dish with a side of sauteed vegetables. Let me know if you try this recipe. Do you have a go-to fish recipe? I would love to try it!

Time:  35 minutes
Ingredients: 1 uncooked salmon fillet or salmon steak, 1/4 cup of melted butter (substitute: grapeseed oil or any preferred cooking oil), zesty lemon seasoning, 1 lemon, and dill.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Rinse the uncooked salmon fillet or salmon steak in cold water. Then pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Place the salmon onto a foiled baking sheet or plate.
  4. Lightly coat the salmon with 1/4 cup of melted butter. You can substitute the butter with your preferred cooking oil. (I like to use grapeseed oil as a healthy alternative.)
  5. Season the salmon with a zesty lemon seasoning.
  6. Chop a handful of dill (without the stems). Then sprinkle the dill all over the salmon.
  7. Cut a lemon into slices. Squeeze the juice from a slice of lemon, and then drizzle the lemon juice all over the salmon. Evenly place the remaining lemon slices on top of the salmon.
  8. Bake the salmon for 35 minutes.
  9. Remove lemon slices from the salmon before eating.
