Dill Salmon Recipe

A simple dill salmon recipe which takes minutes to prepare.

Dill and seafood are an ideal combination - it gives a faintly sweet anise type flavor - very subtle and with lemon, it cuts through the oil of the salmon.


Recipe to serve 4

  • 4 salmon steaks or fillets
  • 1 lemon - juice and finely grated zest
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • small handful of finely chopped dill leaves
  • freshly ground black pepper

In a shallow dish, combine the lemon juice, zest, olive oil, dill and black pepper.

Take the salmon fillets and dip them into the marinade.

Turn to coat and if you have time, leave them about 10 to 15 minutes each side.

Heat the oven to gas mark 6, 180C.

Put the fish in a baking tray and pour the marinade over.

Bake for about 15 minutes - test the fish is cooked by pressing with your finger.

If it is firm to the touch, then it's ready - if not leave another 5 minutes or so.

When the fish flakes, it is ready.

Serve with either a salad and some crusty bread or some new potatoes and veg.

Pour the juices over the fish prior to serving.

If you have time, leave the salmon fillets in the dill, lemon and oil mixture for about 20 to 30 minutes, turning the fish so that it marinates - the recipe will be a bit tastier for this.

Serve with some buttered vegetables and some plain boiled potatoes.
