This easy salmon dinner is light and quick. All you need is:

  • Salmon fillets
  • 1 or 2 lemons sliced thin
  • Fresh dill
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • ~1/2 C Wine, stock, or water
  • 1 T Butter

Place sliced lemon in the bottom of your baking dish and sprinkle a generous amount of fresh dill a over the lemons. Season both sides of the salmon with olive oil, salt, and pepper, then place on the lemons and dill bed. Add about a 1/2 cup of whichever liquid you choose, I used water here since my supplies were low.

Cover the dish with tin foil and bake at 375 degrees until the fish is cooked, check around 10-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fillets. Remove from oven and let rest about 5 minutes before serving. Chop a little extra fresh dill and sprinkle over the fillet on the plate as a garnish. Enjoy with a fresh salad along side for an easy meal.
