Salmon with Horseradish-Dill Sauce
I'm a sucker for fresh seafood, as I'm sure you can tell if you've seen any of my other posts. I braved Costco on January 3rd (which was a task in and of itself), but I was able to score some beautiful fresh salmon for a great price. I cut the slab of salmon into individual portions and froze what I wasn't going to use. This is a very easy, quick recipe which would be great for a week night meal! I served this with some roasted dill carrots which I picked up from Whole Foods, but you could pair this with a variety of vegetables! If you like horseradish, you'll love this dish! Enjoy!
4 6oz salmon fillets, skin removed (personal preference)
salt, to taste
lemon pepper, to taste
1 tb olive oil
1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream
2 tb fresh dill, chopped
1 tb prepared horseradish (you can modify depending on your preference)
1/2 lemon, juiced
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking dish with foil (this is just what I prefer, but you can also grease the dish and not use foil). Spray the foil with a little non-stick cooking spray. Place the salmon into the baking dish, brush each fillet with a little olive oil, and top with the salt and lemon pepper. Bake for 12-15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. This will cook it to a medium-well temperature if you stick to 15 minutes. In the meantime, combine the sour cream, horseradish, dill, and lemon juice. Whisk until combined. When the salmon is cooked to your liking, remove from the oven and top with the horseradish-dill sauce.
