This delicious Garlic Lemon Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce in Foil is the ultimate weeknight dinner that’s healthy, easy to prepare, and ready in less than 30 minutes!
Is there anything better than a quick healthy weeknight meal that tastes delicious and looks like it came straight from a fancy restaurant?? That’s how I feel about this Garlic Lemon Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce baked in foil! Y’all, this salmon is SO flavorful, making it perfect for those busy weeknights when you want something delicious and healthy!
We eat salmon almost every week in our house. I could literally eat salmon EVERY SINGLE DAY!! Lol! I love searing it, grilling it, baking it….anyway you cook it, it is still sooo yummy! Besides being scrumptious, salmon has several wonderful health benefits! (Let me put on my Registered Dietitian hat for a sec!) Salmon is rich in omega-3 fatty acids which can lower your risk of heart disease. Salmon is also a great source of protein! Each 4 oz serving contains approximately 22-25 g/protein. Awesome, right?!
I really love baking my salmon in foil because all those delicious flavors are sealed up inside while the fish cooks giving you perfectly seasoned and tender salmon in just minutes! And the Easy Dill Sauce just takes it to another level! I always like to broil my salmon for about 3 to 5 minutes after baking to allow the juices to caramelize on top as well as getting nice crisp edges! Broiling it gives it such a beautiful color! Once your salmon is done, pair it with some delicious veggies! My favs are asparagus and green beans! What do you like to pair your salmon with?? I would love to hear from you!
