1teaspoonfreshly squeezed lemon juice
4boneless salmon filetsabout 1 ½ to 2 pounds total
Fresh dill for garnish
Preheat the oven to 450°F degrees.
In a small bowl, whisk together the ingredients for the sauce. Cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to serve the salmon.
Heat the olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat.
Season the salmon filets on both sides with salt and pepper, then place in the hot skillet skin side up (or just cook on one side if your filets are skinless). Sear for about 2 minutes until golden brown. Be very gentle when flipping the salmon; it can tear easily.
TIP: If you do not have an oven-safe skillet, just use a regular skillet and then transfer the salmon filets to a glass baking dish for the oven baking portion of this recipe.
Flip the salmon filets in the pan so they are skin side down, then place the skillet in the oven and bake at 450F for 6-10 minutes until the salmon is cooked through (the length of cooking time depends on the thickness of the filets). When the salmon is finished cooking it will be fork-tender and the internal temperature should be 145F on a meat thermometer.
Remove the pan from the oven and transfer the salmon filets to plates to serve. Top with the prepared dill cream sauce and garnish with fresh dill.
Salmon is difficult to flip without tearing. I used tongs to very gentle wiggle the fish in the pan to be sure it was not sticking, then also used a thin spatula when flipping the fish.These two tools together allowed me to flip it easily without the salmon falling apart. It’s also important to not flip it until it has a nice golden-brown sear.
