My husband was in the mood for salmon so I found a beautiful & FRESH Sockeye Salmon at the store today. I decided to keep it healthy and simple because that’s how we like it. I wanted to get some flavor from a little butter but I also wanted to avoid all the extra fat so I mixed a bit of butter, olive oil, and fresh garlic together to spread on top of the fish. I then sprinkled fresh dill all over the salmon before layering slices of lemon on top. I cooked it at a high temperature for 10 minutes and it turned out PERFECT! My kids absolutely loved this salmon and gobbled up every last bite on their plate, which was awesome because they both said they didn’t like fish before dinner. My husband and I also loved it and there was not a single bite of the fish leftover. I have a feeling salmon will be on the menu more often!
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a baking sheet with tin foil then coat it with cooking spray.
Combine the butter, olive oil, and garlic together then spread evenly over the top of the fish. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Sprinkle freshly chopped dill all over followed by a layer of lemon slices. Place skin side down on the prepared baking sheet.
Place into the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the salmon flakes easily with a fork. Remove from the oven and serve with additional slices of lemon if desired. Serve immediately. Enjoy.
