Salmon with Creamy Garlicky Dill Sauce

Oh, seafood! How I love thee!
Honestly, I could eat my weight in seafood if it
were physically possible. It does not matter what type,
I love it all!

I have been trying to cook more seafood at home.
I really would love to get to a point where we are having some
type of seafood at least twice a week. However, the price
for seafood is ridiculous!! I am committed to this task though,
so I will find a way.

I found this salmon recipe on Pinterest the other day.
I had decided to try another recipe but this one looked
better and easier. So, I decided to go with this one for
a mid-week meal.

Let me just say, this one is definitely a keeper!
The original recipe can be found on A Teaspoon of Happiness.
She has developed a great recipe that I tweaked just a little.
The ingredients that I used are what is listed here. You can find
the original recipe by clicking on the "here" link under the recipe name.

Salmon with Creamy Garlicky Dill Sauce
Original recipe can be found here.

You will need the following:

4 salmon fillet pieces
2/3 cup of sour cream
2/3 cup of mayonanaise
1 1/2 teaspoons prepared minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced onion
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons creamy horseradish
4 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
Salt and Pepper

The original recipe calls for one whole fillet. 
I went with individual pieces for easier serving.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

1. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

2. Place salmon fillets unto aluminum foil.

3. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until salmon is
cooked through.

5. While salmon is cooking, combine all the ingredients
for the garlicky dill sauce.

I did this step while the salmon was in the oven.
The original recipe says to complete this step before you
begin cooking the salmon. I personally was just thinking about
ways to save some time with it being a weeknight. Either way would
be fine though.

6. Cover the sauce and refrigerate while the salmon is finishing.

7. Once salmon is cooked through, remove and plate.
Garnish with dill sauce.

Again, this was a simply amazing dish.
I think I will also try the sauce on other protein
in the future. I believe it would pair well with
other choices of fish, chicken and pork.

I hope you enjoy!

Love to you all from the
