Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce

October 1, 2012

Salmon and fresh dill?  Oh yes please.  It is always a happy day to find some fresh salmon.  Although I make it in many ways they are all quite similar since I like fish plain and simple.  Today you see I have added a fabulous dill sauce which can be served on the fish or in a side dish.  “Knowing your guests”.

  • Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper
  • 2 Lemons (for juicing and garnish)
