Dill-icious

Once again, I lucked out on another great recipe from our latest swap!  The theme was seafood, and I was fortunate enough to get a nice salmon recipe.  Frank's been loving salmon (he even cooks it for himself when I'm not home) so it's always good to have easy options in our collection.

I made a few changes to this recipe, submitted by Coleen from Does NOT Cook Well With Others.  One was the use of fresh dill instead of dried.  It makes a big difference!  I upped the other spice amounts, too...of course, you can use whatever amounts you're comfortable with.

I also squeezed lemon on the salmon prior to cooking it.  I thought it would be a good replacement for the butter, plus, the only place I saw lemon in the recipe was in the sauce (which I didn't make).  So, in order to make to make it lemon-dill salmon, I had to add it in :)

This dish was quick, easy and tasted great...nice and fresh and light.  I served it with broccoli and my garlic roasted potatoes.  This would work well on the grill, too.  Too bad it's been raining here ALL WEEK!! :(


Thanks for the recipe, Coleen!

Lemon-Dill Salmon

I do love dill! Funny, never did as a kid; although I guess that's really not so funny. Mr. Rosemary likes salmon the same way every time -- kinda teriyaki-ed, with soy, honey and dried red pepper. Maybe I can work on him for your version. I know I'd love it.

Dill and salmon are a sublime pairing -- lemon and garlic are bonuses! Great recipe. Hope your rainy weather quits soon -- you've had lots to contend with lately!
