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!
- 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
- 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).
- 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.
- Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
