Salmon with Lemon and Dill


Salmon is baked in a lemon dill butter sauce for this wonderful (and easy) recipe I got from my aunt. The flavors really complement the fish here. I like to use wild Alaskan salmon for this recipe, but any salmon will work. I usually don't measure, so these are all estimates. Play with the ingredients to suit your own tastes!

  • 1 pound salmon fillets

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.

  2. Place salmon in the baking dish. Mix butter and lemon juice in a small bowl, and drizzle over salmon. Season with dill, garlic powder, sea salt, and pepper.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until salmon is easily flaked with a fork, about 25 minutes.
