Easy, healthy baked salmon with creamy lemon dill sauce is a tasty 15-minute meal with simple ingredients and incredible flavor. This easy salmon recipe comes together so quickly and requires just a handful of ingredients.
There's nothing like fresh salmon, it melts in your mouth. The creamy lemon dill sauce adds to the flavor of the salmon and compliments the dish so well. These days I’m eating salmon weekly and I love all the health benefits. I’ve always been fond of seafood and in particular salmon, but lately, I can’t get enough of this amazing fish. The whole meal comes together very quickly for a simple salmon recipe that never disappoints!
I have collaborated with Alaska Seafood and created 4 quick and fuss-free salmon recipes, that could easily be replicated for a family. I want to bring more awareness to eating healthier and natural fish. You can check out their website here: https://www.alaskaforeverwild.com
Alaska, the large, sparsely populated state, is one of the world’s largest seafood exporters. Seafood is Alaska’s most valuable renewable resource and is the state’s second-largest industry behind oil/gas, in terms of generated labor income. Commercial fishing and seafood processing are vitally important for rural, coastal communities in Alaska. The industry accounts for roughly a third of all private-sector employment occurring in rural Alaska. Seafood from Alaska is wild, natural and sustainable.
Fish from Alaska swim wild in the icy Pacific Ocean. This freedom to swim and the fish’s natural diet creates superior taste and texture. Wild Alaska seafood is firmer, fitter and a more vibrant fish. Wild Alaska seafood has no artificial coloring, preservatives, pesticides or GMOs. Alaska’s fish live in some of the cleanest waters in the world. Sustainable: Ticking the sustainable box cannot be easier when buying Alaska seafood.
Step 1. Place alaska salmon fillets skin side down onto a prepared baking pan. Add olive oil into the pan, and smear the salmon a little bit around.
Step 2. Pat each alaska salmon fillet with a paper towel, then season well with salt, pepper and squeeze a generous amount of lemon juice all over the fish. Then add double/heavy cream into the pan around the fish. Make sure the cream is at room temperature.
Step 3. Sprinkle fresh or dried dill, and bake in the preheated oven at 200 C / 400 F for 10-15 min. Once its cooked, leave to cool down for 5-10 min before serving. Enjoy with loads of sauce, freshly cut lemon and more dill.
