Baked Salmon with Creamy Lemon Dill Sauce

Salmon.  You know it's good for you, but maybe you find the strong flavor a bit off-putting.  

This may be the salmon recipe for you.

The creamy Greek Yogurt sauce that accompanies this salmon recipe is fresh, bright and both complements and subdues the fish-y flavor of the salmon.

In other words, this could be your family's answer to a picky salmon eater.  (Take a note from my playbook:  call it fish with ranch dip--works great for my G).

Baked Salmon with Creamy Lemon Dill Sauce

1 1/2 pounds salmon
1 cup low fat Greek Yogurt
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon dried dill weed
1 teaspoon lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon chopped capers (optional--if you omit, add extra 1/4 teaspoon salt)
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Rinse and pat dry the salmon, place on a baking sheet, sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until the salmon is fully baked (flakes with a fork, but not dry--cooking time will depend on the thickness of your salmon).

While the salmon is baking, assemble the remaining ingredients and make the quick and easy sauce:




Combine the yogurt, red onion, garlic, dill weed, lemon zest and lemon juice:


Add the salt and pepper and stir well:



If desired, add some capers (or salt):



Add some horseradish (optional):



Once the salmon is baked, top with some of the creamy lemon dill sauce and a lemon slice, if desired:


Serves 4.

Salmon.  It's what's for dinner!

Life is sweet,
SPC

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email emutemple@gmail.com
