This incredibly simple yet delicious dish combines the flavours of fresh dill and lemon with the rich taste of salmon. If you don't have fresh dill, substitute 2 teaspoons of dried dill. For added flavour, garnish each fillet with freshly grated lemon zest before serving.

Servings: 4


4 salmon fillets (4 ounces/120 grams each)

2 cloves garlic, chopped

2 tablespoons fresh dill, finely chopped

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

4 lemon slices


Preheat oven to 375F (180C).

Place fillets on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray. Evenly sprinkle the fillets with the garlic and dill. Place a lemon slice on top of each fillet.

Bake for 12 to 16 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
