This delightfully easy Baked Salmon Recipe is topped with a creamy dill sauce that'll make you want to lick your plate clean. 

This Easy Baked Salmon Recipe is quickly cooked until flakey and then topped with a warm and creamy dill sauce.



For the Creamy Dill Sauce:


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly spray with non-stick spray.
  2. Place salmon out on counter for 10 to 15 minutes, to bring to room temperature. Use a paper towel to blot and remove any moisture from salmon.
  3. Place salmon on foil-lined baking sheet and drizzle with oil, covering top and sides. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until salmon reaches 140 degrees F at the thickest portion.

Creamy Dill Sauce:

  1. While the salmon is cooking, prepare the quick pan sauce. Heat a small skillet over medium heat and add in the butter. Once melted, stir in the garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  2. Whisk in the flour, cooking for about 1 to 2 minutes. Gradually stir in the milk, until the sauce is smooth. Stir in the dill, dijon and salt and pepper. Simmer on low heat until the salmon is ready, stirring occasionally.
  3. Serve salmon while hot with the creamy dill sauce drizzled over top. Enjoy!
