Baked Salmon and Dill Sauce

Baked Salmon and Dill Sauce

While known for its high Omega-3 benefits, salmon is extremely healthy in other ways. Several recent studies have found that salmon contains small bioactive protein molecules (called bioactive peptides) that may provide special support for joint cartilage, insulin effectiveness, and control of inflammation in the digestive tract.

It almost makes for a delicious main dish and pairs well with a side of your favorite steamed veggies. This recipe is a classic and highlights the taste of the salmon without burying it under an overly aggressive sauce. This baked dill salmon recipe makes about 6 servings. The salmon can be prepped ahead of time and be used for a couple extra lunches or dinners.

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 salmon fillet (about 2 pounds)
  • 1 to 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon onion salt
  • 1 small onion, sliced and separated into rings
  • 6 lemon slices
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed

 

DILL SAUCE:

  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 3/4 teaspoon dill weed
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Pepper to taste

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Line a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan with heavy-duty foil; grease lightly. Place salmon skin side down on foil. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper and onion salt. Top with onion and lemon. Dot with butter. Fold foil around salmon; seal tightly,
  2. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Open foil carefully, allowing steam to escape. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 8-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.
