Lemon, Dill and Garlic Salmon Recipe

Lemon, Dill and Garlic Salmon Recipe

Want to pack some omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin D into your dinner? Try this simple, delicious recipe for baked salmon.


1-2 salmon filets
½ a lemon
3 tbsp mayo
2 cloves minced garlic
Fresh ground pepper
Fresh ground sea salt
Dried dill
Garlic Powder


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line glass baking dish with tin foil, and add filets to dish. Squeeze fresh lemon juice over filets.

Next, mince garlic and mix with mayo (try homemade mayo for a special treat). Spread mixture over filets, and then grind fresh pepper and sea salt on top. Next, generously sprinkle dill over salmon, and then sprinkle a bit of garlic powder and paprika on top.

Use more tin foil to cover dish (tent the foil up a bit). Bake until salmon is cooked through and flaky (exact time will depend on thickness of your filets). Enjoy!

Love wild salmon, the farm raised is not good for you, tried the recipe, good but next time I think I will use the juice of a whole lemon instead of 1/2 a lemon.

Gotta love salmon, especially non-farm raised.

There is a wonderful young man at our farmers market who bring fresh caught salmon when
they are available, that's the Only salmon I will eat.
Olivia, you describe exactly what the bears do when they fish for salmon. Are they bad too??

No need to add mercury - there's already a pinch there!

I'm a little disapointed that you incourage eating salmon, which are intelligent, sensative animals. I once saw someone fishing salmon at the top of a river that they jump up to mate at the top, and tears filed my eyes at the though of all they'd done to get there, just to get killed!
