Roasted Wild Salmon and Dill Recipe

A couple of Bronx kids, one Irish American and the other Puerto Rican American took a trip to Ireland. It was a trip of a lifetime. 

The people we met, the relatives we visited, would forever change us. 

While the Irish are not always known for their cuisine, we were totally impressed with the fresh salmon in Waterford county, the Republic of Ireland. One recipe we fondly recall and absolutely love is the salmon.  Below is the recipe.

Roasted Wild Salmon and Dill
1 (2 1/4-pound) wild salmon fillet   
Cooking spray 
2 teaspoons olive oil 
3/4 teaspoon salt 
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill 
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind 
8 (1/8-inch-thick) slices lemon 
Preheat oven to 450°.
Place fish, skin side down, on a foil-lined baking sheet coated with cooking
spray. Brush fish with oil; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sprinkle dill and rind over fish; arrange lemon slices over fish. 
Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness.
Lesson learned here is to try the local cuisine and savor the food that the residents eat and pass on the recipes and enjoy!

I’d love to hear your feedback and know if you enjoy the salmon as much as I did.
