Baked Salmon with Dill Butter

The key to cooking and enjoying delicious salmon: buy good quality salmon (wild is best, and I like Alaskan sockeye) and do not overcook it!

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 t. dried dillweed
  • 4 T. butter, softened
  • 6 slices lemon slices (one per serving, optional)
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)

  • While salmon is baking, stir together garlic cloves, softened butter and dillweed.
