Salmon with Garlic, Lemon, & Dill

Salmon with Garlic, Lemon, & Dill

Hi everybody :)

Salmon is my all-time favorite seafood! When I first saw this on Pinterest, I knew I would be making it one day. It's a simple and easy recipe, that takes minutes to prepared. The butter, oil and garlic are blended together, spread over the salmon, then it's sprinkled with dill, salt and pepper and layered with lemon slices and baked. SIMPLE. QUICK. and EASY. My favorite recipe combination. 
Salmon with Lemon, Garlic & Dill adapted For the Love of Cooking
1 lb salmon fillet
2 tsp butter
1 tsp olive oil
1 clove of garlic, minced
Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste (I used lemon pepper)
Fresh dill, to taste
Lemon slices (
I used a Meyer Lemon)


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then coat it with cooking spray.
Combine the butter, olive oil, and garlic together then spread evenly over the top of the fish. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Sprinkle freshly chopped dill all over followed by a layer of lemon slices. Place skin side down on the prepared baking sheet.
Place into the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the oven and serve with additional slices of lemon if desired. Serve immediately. 

What I Did and/or Think:
The taste: With only a few ingredients this dish is pack with flavor. The salmon was deliciously moist and tender. I used a Meyer Lemon and sprinkled with lemon pepper for extra punch. REPEAT Is a MUST! Thanks Pam, for sharing this wonderful dish.

ENJOY! Come again...
