Now that I'm a dill farmer (with my one plant), I've been trying to incorporate fresh dill in more of our meals. Dill and salmon have long been associated with each other. We love salmon and we really loved this sauce. It was such an easy sauce to put together and really elevated a very simple dish.
We grill a lot and prefer our salmon grilled. The salmon can easily be baked in a 400-degree oven.
Salmon With Dill Sauce
4 6-oz. salmon fillets
1/3 cup plain, Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons sour cream
2 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice, divided
1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped; plus extra for garnish
1-2 teaspoons lemon zest
1 clove garlic
Sea salt and lemon pepper seasoning
Preheat grill (or oven, if using).
In a medium bowl, combine yogurt, mayonnaise and sour cream, and mix together.Then add dill, garlic, lemon zest and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Taste and add salt or pepper, if needed.
Season both sides of salmon with salt and lemon pepper seasoning. Drizzle both sides with olive oil and the remaining 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Grill for 13-16 minutes, or until cooked through.
Remove salmon from grill and let rest 5 minutes.Transfer to plates and serve, topped with dill sauce and fresh dill.
