Recipe: Baked Salmon with Lemon and Dill
Ingredients1.5 lbs. wild salmon filets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large lemon, thinly sliced
4 sprigs of fresh dill
½ cup of dry white wine, or fish stock, chicken stock, or water
DirectionsPre-heat oven to 325°.
Coat both sides of salmon filets with olive oil and salt and pepper. In oven-safe dish, layer 2-3 sprigs of dill and lemon slices and place salmon on top with the skin side down. Add the wine. Place lid or cover with foil and cook for approximately 10 minutes per side, depending on thickness; the internal temperature should reach 135° and the salmon will be a light coral color with a flaky texture. Do not overcook. Remove from oven and cover 5 more minutes with foil or lid – it will continue cooking. Garnish with dill. Four servings.
