Lemon Dill Salmon
4 pieces of Salmon (6 oz each, washed and cleaned)
1 tbsp. dill (finely chopped)
1 tbsp. olive oil
3 garlic cloves (crushed)
1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 lemon (squeezed)
1 tsp. honey
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Place the clean pieces of salmon in an oven-safe pan.
In a bowl, mix well the dill, olive oil, crushed garlic, mustard, lemon juice (or half of it), honey, and salt and pepper (to your liking). Taste and adjust.
Pour and spread the mix over the salmon.
Bake for 25-30 minutes (I like it cooked all the way through but not overcooked).
Finish with a broil for a couple of minutes (depends on your oven), until it gets a little crust and golden on top (watch it like a hawk).
If you have any leftovers, use them in the loaded tacos.
I love to get my fish at Whole Foods.

I don’t want to brag (but I will), I know my way with this fish. Most times it’s not even worth it to dine out. In my humble opinion, it is really hard to ruin a good cut of this wonderful and versatile fish.
If you love salmon but are afraid to cook it because you think it’s too hard, think again.
I promise you; it’s going to be a star in your kitchen. The robust flavors complement the tenderness and flakiness of the salmon in such incredible harmony. And… it is one of the easiest dishes to master.
