Grilled Salmon w/Dill Sauce over steamed potatoes, peas and bacon

Kim Biegacki


I love Salmon as you already know and this is one very simple Salmon dish. It is basic comfort food in our home. I love the creamy dill sauce over the Salmon and veggies. The bacon adds just a little savor to the dish.

I made this last year for my birthday dinner because I didn't feel like going out.
Well, I hope you enjoy.

6 oz. of salmon fillets
new potatoes
frozen or fresh peas
6 - 8 slice
cooked and crumbled bacon
1/2 c
squeezed lemon juice
1 - 2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 Tbsp
salt and pepper to taste


1/2 c
1/2 c
sour cream or plain yogurt
1 tsp
fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp
1 1/2 Tbsp
fresh dill or 3/4 tsp of dill weed


6 - 8 slice
lemon, thinly sliced
1 - 2 sprig(s)
of fresh dill


1Prepare you dill sauce and set in refrigerator till ready to serve.
2Rinse your salmon fillets with water and pat dry. Now place them flat in a shallow baking dish and pour the lemon juice over them and refrigerate for 10 minutes to marinate them. Turn them once while in the marinade.
Meanwhile, begin to steam your potatoes and peas. Cook up your bacon and crumble.

[Do not let the fish sit any longer than 15 minutes in this lemon marinade or else you will ruin the fish. I have done and let it sit for 1/2 hour and all you could taste was lemon. It was terrible!]
3Remove your fillets from marinade and lightly coat with your olive oil. Cook salmon 4-6 minutes on each side depending on the thickness of your fillet.
4Place your steamed veggies in a bowl and mix with 1 tbsp. of butter, salt and pepper and add your bacon. Now, place your fillets on top and pour your dill sauce over them. Garnish with lemon slices and a sprig of dill.
