If you're looking for a nutritious and tasty salmon dinner, we've found your recipe. We love the Cajun spices added to the salmon. It gives it a burst of flavor. Rainbow carrots add a touch of color to the dish. Those, along with the red potatoes, are tender. Drizzle the creamy dill sauce over the salmon for another pop of flavor. The sauce reminds us of a tartar sauce but with dill. The combination of herbs and seasonings in this recipe is fantastic. This baked salmon is easy to make but looks impressive.
