Lemon Dill Salmon has to be one of my very favorite meals. The flavors are simply perfect and delicious!

And this salmon really couldn’t be easier to prepare. Which makes it wonderful to prepare for guests or for a busy, but special weeknight meal.

I threw this salmon together in no-time flat.

Simply place lemon slices on top of your salmon filet, then top with a mix of chopped dill and parsley.

Then, I drizzled the entire filet with olive oil and seasoned with a bit of salt and pepper.

Normally, my husband enjoys smoking the salmon on our Big Green Egg, but since he was busy I decided to take care of it in the oven instead.

I recommend always using a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of meats when you cook them, regardless of whether you’ve cooked them on the grill, stove, or in the oven. You can just never be too careful in my book.

The internal temperature of salmon should register 140 degrees when fully-cooked. I like to remove it from the heat source about 10 degrees before this temperature (at 130 degrees), cover it, and allow it to continue cooking as it rests. This prevents the salmon from overcooking and becoming dry.

It is certainly one of my favorite fail-proof tricks!

Here’s the recipe for my Lemon Dill Salmon. I hope you love it as much as we do.

    This was so simple and light. I let the salmon marinate in the lemon dill for an hour or so, then I put a cast iron pan in the oven while I preheated it. Gave a nice crisp to the skin which my son loves. Will try this on the grill next time with grilled corn on the cob!

  2. Really great recipe. I only had dill and le,on and it worked out great. Hubby doesn’t like dill so he had
    just lemon, salt and olive oil and he loved it. So easy’
