Salmon with Mustard Dill Sauce

Salmon with mustard dill sauce is packed with flavor. The recipe for this gluten-free dish is easy. If possible, use wild salmon which has a deep, natural color and a much richer taste than farm-raised salmon.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

1 teaspoon plus 3 tablespoons olive oil

Four 5-ounce wild salmon fillets

1 garlic clove

1 lemon

2 green onions

1/2 teaspoon dried dill

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons slivered almonds

1 teaspoon brown mustard

1/4 teaspoon pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  4. Rinse and pat the fillets dry.

  5. Place the fish in a single layer in the dish.

  7. Juice the lemon.

  8. Chop the green onions.

  9. Combine 1/4 teaspoon garlic, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, the onion, dill, red pepper flakes, oregano, salt, almonds, brown mustard, pepper, and 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a blender.
