Fried salmon with garlic and dill.

Fresh herbs are the key to a healthy, tasty cuisine. If you don’t usually buy fresh herbs on a regular basis, I recommend picking up a few the next time you visit the grocery store. Today’s recipe is designed to inspire you to reach for fresh dill! I often cook with dill, whether in a dressing or mixed into a salad, but today I’m sharing my Garlic Dill Roasted Salmon.


  • Salmon: I prefer to use wild salmon in my cooking, both wild-caught and farmed salmon are great sources of omega-6 fatty acids.
  • Olive oil: A heart-healthy oil for coating and marinating the salmon.
  • Garlic: Nutty, pungent and aromatic that sweetens when cooked.
  • Dill: Light, fresh, slightly sweet taste, very commonly associated with pickles, but delicious in many dishes.
  • lemon: The tart citrus flavor using both zest and fresh lemon slices pairs beautifully with seafood and dill.

Frequently asked Questions:

Should I cover my salmon when I bake it in the oven?

nope! I always bake my fish open.

How do you know when the salmon is cooked?

Fish cooks pretty quickly so keep an eye on it. Salmon should cook to an internal temperature of 145C if you have a meat thermometer, but the easiest way to check is to gently press the top with a fork and see if it flakes.
