Baked Salmon with Dill Sauce Recipe


This baked salmon with dill is elegant enough for entertaining, but easy enough for weeknight dinners! Just 5 min to prep this dill salmon!


  • 1/2 oz. fresh dill
  • 7 Tbsp. softened butter, divided
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 lbs. salmon fillet (or 56 oz. fillets) 
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 475 degrees F.
  2. Make compound butter. Zest lemon and chop dill. Mix lemon zest and fresh dill with 6 tablespoons of butter. Form butter into a log shape and refrigerate.
  3. Put the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter onto a rimmed baking sheet and put it into the oven. As soon as it foams (about 1 minute), take it out and place salmon, skin side down on the pan. Season salmon with salt and pepper and bake for about 8-12 minutes, until it flakes easily.
  4. Serve salmon with a slice of compound butter over the top. 


  • Get your kids involved. They can: stir together fresh dill butter, season salmon with salt and pepper.
  • If you use smaller 6 oz. fillets, they shouldn’t need more than 8 minutes in the oven.
