Salmon with Lemon Dill Sauce_1

This salmon with lemon dill sauce is such an easy and elegant dish. Not to mention delicious! What better way to get your omega 3’s than a fresh fillet of wild salmon? This is a very simple meal to prepare, and the sauce is amazing and since its served on the side, you can have it with salmon or any other fish you like. It would also be great with halibut or cod.

I kept the seasoning simple on the salmon, as I just used pepper, and a no-salt seasoning I had on hand. But you can season the fish however you like. Old Bay seasoning is also great on seafood if you have that around.

I love to serve fish with rice and either a salad or a steamed vegetable. On this particular night I used a ready-to-heat rice, this one pictured was a combination of brown rice and quinoa. It was really nice, and I got the spanish style rice. The brand was Seeds of Change in case you’re interested.

I hope you give this easy recipe a try next time you’re having salmon!
