Lemon Dill Salmon

This Lemon Dill Salmon is easy, healthy, and delicious! You only need 2 ingredients for this delicious salmon seasoning! This baked salmon recipe is packed full of fresh, citrusy flavor and tastes amazing! Lemon Dill Salmon is perfect for any weeknight meal with the family!

Lemon Dill Salmon is one of my go-to healthy, quick and easy weeknight meals.  I use fresh dill for this recipe, but you can also use dehydrated.

Salmon has many health benefits, most of all it is packed with omega 3 fatty acids.  In addition, it has been linked to lower cholesterol, reducing the chance of heart attacks, aiding in the building of muscle and it is tasty!

Since salmon is loaded with its own unique flavor, it doesn’t need much added to it, simple lemon and dill will perfectly pair with this robust fish!

Lemons are also loaded with health benefits that most people aren’t aware of. They are great source of vitamin C which helps to boost your immune system, fiber, calcium, potassium, iron, magnesium, and copper, just to name a few!

If you aren’t sure how long to bake salmon, then I’ll give you a few tips to follow when it comes to making your salmon:

  • Always make sure your salmon internal temperature is 145 degrees Fahrenheit at the thickest part of the fillet.
  • If it flakes easily with a fork that means it’s ready!
  • There’s no need to flip your salmon while it’s cooking.
  • There are 3 things to look for to know if your salmon fillet is ready: firm, flaky, and non-transparent!

Ultimately, salmon is very easy to work with and doesn’t really need any preparation! It’s a perfect dish to make on a busy night and great to pair with some green beans, broccoli, or potatoes on the side!

  2. Cover salmon fillets with fresh lemon juice. Season with fine sea salt and pepper. Top with chopped dill.
