Healthy Salmon with Dill Recipe

Wild Caught Salmon with Dill

I’ve said it before. I’m not a fish person but ever since I made my Black & White Sesame Salmon, I just can’t get enough!! I got a lovely piece of wild-caught salmon today and made a recipe that simply knocked my socks off!! I hope you like it as much as I did!!

You’ll need:

  • 1lb wild caught salmon (I always strive to get wild caught, read this to find out why)
  • 1 single serving container of plain Greek yogurt (typically about 5-6oz)
  • 1 bunch of fresh dill, chopped fine
  • 1/2 – 1 large shallot, diced
  • juice of 1 small lemon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • fresh ground black pepper to taste

This will make enough for roughly 3-4 servings.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

In a small bowl wisk together the Greek yogurt, chopped dill, shallot, lemon juice, salt and pepper.

The best thing about this recipe, there’s no need to marinate! Slather a thick layer of the dill/yogurt mixture over the salmon and bake for approximately 15mins or until fully cooked.

I usually take mine out just before it’s fully cooked and let it sit for about 5 mins. This allows the center to cook through with out over cooking the edges. When the salmon is done it should flake easily with a fork.

The finished product will look like this:

Really juicy, flaky, tangy and lovely, just exactly how fish should taste!! I paired mine with steamed broccoli and sweet peas. WOW!!! I can’t wait to have it again! You’ve got to try it and then let me know what you think; you will love, love, love it!!!

    I’m from an Alaskan commercial fishing family and you’re right! There’s nothing like wild caught salmon… YUM! From your pictures I did notice something… you might be cooking your salmon a bit too long. This will in turn make your salmon a bit more dry than is necessary… and although still wonderful, is not as moist and delicious as it could be. I’m always paranoid about overcooking fish because it loses something when it gets too firm. My rule of thumb is to pull it out when I’m sure it needs just a few more minutes. The fish continues to cook when it is pulled out of the oven and wala! perfection. Thanks again for the wonderful recipes. It’s always fun to have new salmon recipes to try. Some of my favorites include: an olive oil, garlic and dill marinade, teriyaki and my personal favorite… baked with a touch of salt. Simple, delicious. Salmon is amazing with pretty much everything. BBQ sauce, taco seasoning, any oil based salad dressing! The possibilities are endless. Thanks again for the great website! 🙂

      Hi Sally, yeah, this piece was left in a little too long…just a lesson in focusing on one thing at a time!!
      Fresh, wild caught salmon is the best! Esp when it’s flaky and moist and cooked perfectly!!

    Wow! This is good, flakey and moist. Just the way I like my fish. I’ll make this again for sure. Thank you!
