Lemon Soaked Dill Salmon

Summer days mean it’s time for healthy and scrumptious light meals.  This is exactly what you will find this flavorful and fun , “Lemon Soaked Dill Salmon” recipe that I am about to share with you.

What I love nearly just as much as it being delicious, is that it is super stinking easy.  This means that I can enjoy a couple extra moments in the sun, with my family or just relaxing a bit during these limited Chicago summer days.  Plus, my little one year old son seems to gobble it down with zeal and I know that he gets his Omega 3‘s, meaning that his brain will work better and his memory will be improved.  I don’t think he could give a darn that Salmon is a natural anti-depressant or that it helps with anti-aging…but you may!

What You Need

4 Salmon Filets

Olive Oil


Handful of Dill

2 Lemon

2 Garlic Cloves

Creating the Masterpiece:

1. Grab Foil.  Lay salmon on top.

2. Season with salt & drizzle with oil.  Squeeze a lemon on top.

3. Add fresh dill on top to cover as shown in the image.

4. Add cut lemon slices add on top of the dill.

5. Bake at 300 for 25-30 minutes until done.

I would be remiss if I didn’t recommend you throwing that salmon straight onto the grill with all this summer talk, so be sure to try that out too!  I recommend grabbing your favorite drink, absorbing the sweet smells of the grill and basking in the sun as it sets on the horizon.  Once your meal is done, simply serve up some roasted veggies to complement your fine fish and you will be ready to go!

Quick Tip: If you are willing to splurge, try to get your hands on some Wild Alaskan Salmon.  The fresher, the better. Mmmm…it will just melt in your mouth.
