Roasted Salmon with Dill Sauce...Farmer Approved....Kind of!

Here is my recipe for Lemon and Dill Roasted Salmon. I am sure that I found it on Pinterest somewhere but I made a few of my own variations. I say that this is farmer approved... kind of. He likes it, he will eat it, but he would much rather me makes something else. I can't blame him, I married a farmer, he likes beef...and pork. But like I said he does eat this and I think the fabulous "sauce" that goes over top definitely helps.

Let's start with the sauce. This is all to taste. Unless baking I do not measure things. Mainly because I am just cooking for two people, I don't need a whole container of this sauce. So I start with about a cup sour cream ( I use Greek yogurt), and plenty of dill. Fresh is the best, but not always available, I use Dill Weed, the juice from 1/2 lemon and a dash of salt (I use kosher).

Mix it all up and refrigerate until your salmon is done.



I think an important step is making sure you have a good piece of Salmon. I normally always get ours at Costco and its always very good.

Place on a foil lined baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and the other half of your lemon.

Season both sides the salmon with a little bit of kosher salt and some more dill.

Then add fresh garlic

And some sliced lemons.

Bake at 400° for 12-15 minutes and the last couple of minutes I usually turn on the broiler to get the edges a little crispier.
Garnish the top of your salmon with the Dill Sauce and serve to your very hungry farmer.

 That's it for today. The month of December has been so busy, but I do have some fun posts coming up - so stay tuned.

Hope you all are having a fabulous Holiday Season.
