Easy Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce – Simple Kitchen Series

This is the fifth post in Abby Sasscer’s Simple Kitchen Series

Welcome back, everyone!

Christmas is just around the corner and I’m excited to share with you one of my favorite simple recipes: Baked Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce!

I first tasted this dish years ago at a gathering at my aunt’s home. I’ve always loved the festive look of the salmon and wondered how she made the creamy sauce. After many years of waiting for the secret ingredient, I was so surprised at how simple the recipe was!

I typically serve this dish with mashed potatoes and green beans on the side. But you can also serve it over pasta or rice and a fresh salad.

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • 1 pound of salmon fillets (makes 5 – 7 servings)
  • 1 to 1 ½ to cups mayonnaise or mayonnaise substitute
  • 1 – 2 Tablespoons dried dill

Simple Steps

1. Defrost Salmon

Defrost the salmon fillets in the fridge 1 – 2 days ahead.

2. Preheat Oven

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a shallow baking pan, arrange salmon and pat dry.

Make sure that you are using a shallow baking pan as this helps keep the salmon from becoming too dry.

3. Spread Mayonnaise

Spread mayonnaise over fillets until all the tops are coated.

If you prefer, you may use mayonnaise substitutes instead.

4. Sprinkle Dill

Sprinkle dill all over fillets. Add as much or as little as you like. If you don’t particularly like the taste of dill, you can sprinkle some dried onions, basil, parsley or any italian seasoning blend. The sky’s the limit :-)

Oh, and if you have space on your baking pan, you may add veggies on the side if you wish. I typically add a bag or two of frozen green beans. Adding frozen veggies will add moisture to the salmon while baking.

5. Cover & Bake

Cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until salmon is flaky. Remove foil and broil on low for an additional minute. Serve with mashed potatoes, rice or pasta on the side.
