{Lemon Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce}

When I was visiting my family last week, my mom and I tested out a delicious salmon recipe.  We love cooking together and trying out new recipes, and as always, we had so much fun.  This dish did not disappoint, and I have already made it again since I've been home.  I love salmon, and this recipe is so light, fresh, and satisfying.  We made a few adjustments to this Cooking Classy recipe, and you can find it below.  Enjoy!!

4 6-oz salmon filets
2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Creamy Dill Sauce:

1 cup plain Greek yogurt
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp onion or garlic powder
1 tsp dill, chopped


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice. Grease a 13 by 9-inch baking dish and place salmon fillets in baking dish. Season tops of salmon with salt and pepper then rotate to opposite side. Drizzle tops evenly with lemon mixture and gently rub over salmon, then season tops with salt and pepper. Let rest at room temperature 10 minutes, then bake in preheated oven 12 - 16 minutes, or until salmon has cooked through (cook time will vary based on thickness of fillets and how well done you liked them). Serve warm topped with Creamy Dill Sauce.

For the sauce:

In a bowl, mix together all ingredients.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Store in refrigerator, and allow to rest at room temperature for 20 minutes before serving.
