About This Recipe:
It is pretty rare when I am super impressed by my own cooking, but this lemon dill salmon happens to be one of those times. Not only does this recipe require almost no prep work and only 5 ingredients, but the presentation is beautiful and the flavors really shine. This is easy enough for a weeknight dinner, but glam enough for special guests.
I like to serve this salmon with roasted baby potatoes and carrots. I just cut the potatoes in half, chop the carrots into pieces on a diagonal, toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper, and roast at 450 degrees F for about 50 minutes.
