Step 1: Yogurt Sauce Elegance

Let's start with a touch of elegance. In a bowl, mix the first 5 ingredients to create the magical Yogurt Sauce. Season it to your taste with a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper. Once perfected, cover and refrigerate this delightful sauce. The best part? You can whip it up 1-2 days ahead of your culinary journey.

Step 2: Salmon Serenade

Preheat your oven to a toasty 375°F (190°C). Line a 13” by 9” shallow baking dish with non-stick aluminum foil. It's time to set the stage for the Salmon Dill masterpiece. Begin with a layer of chopped dill at the bottom of your baking dish. Top it with the magnificent salmon, then sprinkle some more dill on top. Season the salmon with a pinch of salt and a dash of pepper for that extra burst of flavor.

Step 3: Lemon Symphony

Now, get ready for a Lemon Symphony! Cover your salmon with slices of lemon, creating a vibrant and picturesque presentation that's as delicious as it looks. Loosely cover the entire ensemble with foil, then gently place it in the preheated oven.

Step 4: Oven Waltz

Let the salmon waltz in the oven until it reaches your desired doneness, which is typically about 15 minutes. Your kitchen will fill with the tantalizing aroma of lemon and dill as the salmon bakes to perfection.

Step 5: Flavorful Encore

As the salmon emerges from the oven, serve it with a generous dollop of the Yogurt Sauce. The creamy yogurt sauce adds a zesty and refreshing finish to this culinary masterpiece.


Here's a secret: this dish is not only delicious but also incredibly convenient. You can make the Yogurt Sauce a day or two ahead, and the salmon can be dressed a day ahead and refrigerated. Simply pop it in the oven before serving for a stress-free and delightful dining experience. Covered in slices of lemon, the salmon not only tastes divine but also makes a captivating presentation for your guests.
