Quick and Easy Salmon with Dill

Super Quick and Easy Salmon with Dill | The Baking Beauties
When trying to answer the dreaded “What’s for supper” question, I usually run down a mental check list. It goes something like this:

  1. What do I have in the house?
  2. Do I have the time to make it?
  3. Will the kids eat it?
  4. Does it have any nutritional value?

When it comes to frozen salmon fillets, as long as #1 is answered yes, it can easily be on our table in less than 1/2 hour and everyone will be happy. My kids actually both loves salmon, and they like it when it make it simple. No maple sauce (although that is how I would like to have it), nothing fancy, just simple flavours, and if they can have a wedge of lemon to squeeze on it, all the better. This recipe for Quick and Easy Salmon with Dill is nothing fancy, but it has helped to answer the “What’s for supper” question more than once. I hope you and your family will enjoy it too.

Do your kids likes play a part in helping you decide what to make for supper? 

 Much to my kids dismay, it doesn’t always. Some days, they just have to suck it up and eat a few forkfuls of whatever it is that I’ve made. So’s life!

Quick and Easy Salmon with Dill
Serves: 4
Sometimes you're not sure what to make for dinner. This salmon is so easy, but delicious, that it has answered my "What's for Dinner?" question many times.
  • 1 pound salmon fillets or steaks
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (I like to line my baking sheets with parchment, it guarantees that my food won't stick, but it also makes clean up quite a bit easier).
  2. Rinse the salmon, and arrange on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, onion powder and dried dill. Place pieces of butter evenly over the fish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

    I struggle with menu making! I have 3 kids (23,21,18) w/their work & school, my husband & my
    schedule its the "see who will be home for dinner game" And what they will eat.

    Too funny that you should post about salmon today. I dreamed about cooking salmon for a good portion of the night!

    Looks amazing! Salmon is such a great "go to" meal. I have two boys [21] and hubby at home. I still think about whether the boys will eat what I make or not. The boys can fend for themselves if need be. It's usually more of a question if I want them cooking or should I say messing up my kitchen!

    @laurie, Ha, love that…whether to cook for them, or have to clean up the kitchen after them. :) I'm not good at sharing my kitchen either.
