Easy Salmon with Dill Sauce Recipe
This seared salmon with creamy dill sauce makes an elegant dinner without a lot of fuss. Salmon is seared crisp before being topped with a rich and tangy dill sauce for a satisfying meal in under 30 minutes.
Why We Love This Recipe!
Salmon pairs perfectly with bright herbs and tangy lemon juice, so what better way to enjoy these flavors than in a creamy sauce that combines them both? This sauce doesn’t require heating although it can easily be warmed on the stovetop before serving. Instead, the ingredients are stirred together and spooned over hot seared salmon. This lets the salmon flavor shine without being drenched in a sauce. You can prep the sauce the day of for easy assembly come dinner time.
Learn About Our Salmon!
Here at Sizzlefish, our Atlantic salmon is raised in the remote waters off the Faroe Islands, located between Iceland, Norway and Scotland. This salmon variety is raised without antibiotics. The flavor is mild and flaky. Sizzlefish salmon arrive with the skin on because this is where the heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids are concentrated along the fat line next to the skin. Each portion is available in 4 or 6 ounces, perfect for hungry appetites, with plenty of satiating protein. Before searing, salmon is coated in a light dusting of flour, salt and pepper. This makes for the crispiest outside as soon as the salmon hits the pan.
