Dill and sour cream are combined to make the perfect topping for these simple baked salmon steaks. The recipe calls for salmon steaks, but salmon fillets can be substituted. If using fillets, allow about 6 ounces per serving. Salmon steaks (1-inch thickness) will weigh from 6 to 8 ounces.*

Potatoes, quinoa, or couscous are excellent side dishes to serve with salmon. Vegetables (and legumes) that go particularly well with salmon are asparagus, cucumbers, peas, spinach or chard, red cabbage, and lentils.

What You'll Need

  • 4 salmon steaks or fillets, approximately 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon very finely minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • dash freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/4 cup sour cream (full fat is more flavorful, but may use reduced fat)
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried dill
  • lemon wedges
