  • 6 pieces fresh salmon (about 2″ wide/4 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill chopped
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

For the Sauce

  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill chopped
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon capers chopped
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste


To Make the Sauce

  • Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and allow to sit at room temperature while you make the salmon.

To Make the Salmon

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Place the salmon on a wire rack, placed on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil (for easier cleanup).  Brush each piece with olive oil.  Sprinkle salt, pepper and dill over the tops.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Increase the temperature to 450F and bake for another 5-8 minutes.
  • Serve with a healthy dollop of the sauce over the top of the salmon, and garnish with some dill and capers.


If you don't have fresh dill, you can use about half the amount of dried dill weed instead.
