Given a choice between salmon and almost any other fish, I will almost always choose any other fish. It isn’t that I don’t like salmon; there are just so many other fish I like more. Salmon demands spices with backbone. Mild seasonings will be no match for the robust flavor of salmon. The person who first combined lemon and dill must have shouted, “Eureka”! These flavors complement each other so well, and what they can do for seafood, particularly salmon, is pretty amazing. S&F Lemon Dill Sauce makes it easy to create a classic salmon entrée.
- 4 6-oz salmon filets
- 4 tablespoons S&F Lemon Dill Sauce
- 4 teaspoons panko bread crumbs
- 1/4 teaspoon dry parsley flakes
- Melted butter, just to moisten
Pat the salmon filets dry and lightly score an X-pattern in each filet. Brush the Lemon Dill Sauce over each filet and refrigerate for one hour in a greased baking dish. Preheat the oven to 400°. Mix panko and butter in a small skillet and toast until slightly brown. Add the parsley flakes to the toasted bread crumbs and spread evenly over the filets. Bake filets for 8-12 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Gourmet food producers are usually a great source for recipes. After all, they are going to choose recipes that best showcase their products! This salmon recipe from the Schlotterbeck & Foss website is an example. The lemon dill sauce was tangy and tasty, while the toasted bread crumbs added a really nice crunch to the fish. Although salmon isn’t my favorite fish, this recipe was very enjoyable!
