This is a very simple way to cook salmon, and it’s one of my favorite ways to eat it. Just throw it in the oven with some seasoning, some dill, and a pat of butter, and that’s all there is to it. I much prefer this meal when B grills it nice and charred in the summertime, but during the winter, throwing it in the oven to bake is really good, too. I’m normally not the biggest fan of dill, so I don’t use it often, but there are a few foods that I think it pairs really well with, and salmon is one of them. The flavor of the fish just goes so well with the freshness of the dill. I served this fish with some sauteed broccoli and some couscous mixed with toasted pine nuts, garlic, and feta cheese. A very simple and healthy meal, which is sometimes the best kind.
Seasoned Salmon with Dill
Source: B’s mom
2 salmon filets
4-6 sprigs of dill, stems removed
1 tablespoon butter
1. Season both sides of the salmon with black pepper and onion powder.
2. Place the salmon in a greased baking dish and sprinkle each filet with dill.
3. Top the filets with a couple pats of butter (I used about one tablespoon in total) and cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the fish flakes with a fork.
We made this last night, simple but yum! Posted a pic on my blog:
