Why do I love this Baked Salmon with Capers and Dill?

I Made This recipe last Friday and this is the first time The Kid loves a dish that contains fish which is fantastic for me, we always make some fish dishes like Spicy Mango Salmon Rice Bowl and others but The Kid is not in love with those dishes so seeing it eating this baked Salmon is super satisfied, This recipe it’s awesome because it has a perfect mix of flavors and is really good for you. Salmon has Omega-3 fatty acids which are like superfoods for your heart and body. Capers make it a little tangy and fun, while dill adds a nice fresh taste.

Ingredients

To create this Baked Salmon with Capers and Dill, gather these ingredients:

  • Fresh salmon fillets
  • Capers
  • Fresh dill
  • Olive oil
  • Lemon
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

Recipe Directions

Let’s dive into the steps to create this Baked Salmon with Capers and Dill:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). This ensures even cooking and a beautifully crisp exterior for the salmon.
  2. Prepare the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over each fillet and season with salt and black pepper to taste.
  3. Add Capers and Dill: Sprinkle capers generously over the salmon fillets, ensuring they are evenly distributed. Next, finely chop the fresh dill and scatter it on top.
  4. Squeeze Lemon: Cut a lemon in half and squeeze the juice over the fillets. This not only adds a zesty flavor but also keeps the salmon moist during baking.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Place the tray in the preheated oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
  6. Serve and Enjoy: Remove from the oven, plate your beautiful salmon fillets, and garnish with additional dill and lemon slices if desired. This dish pairs wonderfully with a fresh salad or roasted vegetables.

Kitchen Equipment Needed

  • Baking tray
  • Parchment paper
  • Knife for slicing lemon
  • Chopping board

How to Store

If you have some food left, you can keep it fresh in a closed container in the fridge for 2-3 days. When you want to eat it again, just warm the salmon gently in the oven at a low heat.

Tips and Recipe Variations

To make the fish extra tasty, you can let it soak in a special sauce made of capers, dill, and lemon juice for 30 minutes before cooking. If you like the taste of food from the grill, you can cook the fish that way instead of baking it. It gives the fish a nice smoky taste, and the capers and dill make it taste even better. If you don’t want fish, you can use tofu or Portobello mushrooms instead. It’s a good choice if you don’t eat meat.

FAQ

Can I use dried dill instead of fresh?

Fresh dill tastes best because it’s really flavorful, but if you don’t have it, you can use dried dill. Just use a little less if it’s dried, so it’s not too strong!
