Wild salmon! Definitely one our favourite weekly dinners. It’s easy to prepare, so satisfying, nourishing and great way to bring in more omega-3 and protein into your meals. Research shows the more healthy fats that are consumed during the day, the less cravings for sugar, and more controlled your hunger is!

I like to keep the preparation simple with some avocado or olive oil, fresh lemon juice, Dijon, dill, salt and pepper. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or less (careful to not overcook salmon as it gets dry). Make this dill chive sauce as a dip, side, or marinade – it tastes so good!



Ingredients Dill Chive Sauce –

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chives, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt


Salmon marinade

  • 1 pound wild salmon
  • 4 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1.5 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tsp dijon
  • cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill finely chopped


Directions –

  1. 01. To prepare the marinade mix avocado oil, lemon juice, sea salt, dijon, pepper and dill in a small bowl.
  2. 02. Pierce holes in the salmon using a fork. Pour marinade over salmon and place in the fridge for 30 min before baking in oven at 400F for 12-15 min (do not overcook)
  3. 03. In a medium bowl, combine the sour cream, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, dill, chives, garlic and salt. Whisk well to combine.
  4. 04. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes before servings so that all the flavours come together.
  5. 05. Serve salmon with yogurt chive sauce.
