Not wanting a morsel of it to go to waste, I called my sister over for dinner.
Salmon with dill, lemon and salt and pepper is my absolute favorite way to prepare salmon. And it is easy peasy. Less than a 5 minute prep time is all you need to make a delicious dinner.

Sorry, but this is not the best photo of the final product. I was starving, and the smell of the Salmon was making me salivate. I just couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into the flakey, moist and flavorful fish.

During dinner, there wasn’t much conversation. It was mainly, “mmmmmm’s” and “Oh, my God” and “This is the best salmon I have ever had”
Yeah, it was that good. The best Salmon I have ever had. The flavor of the Norwegian Salmon was FAR superior to another salmon I have had, even the wild caught.
So if you can score yourself some Norwegian Salmon…don’t hesitate!!!!

Not into my way of cooking salmon, Go check out Salmon from Norway for some other ways to prepare the amazing Norwegian Salmon.

    It’s been a while since I made salmon, but Costco had some whole wild sockeye salmon with the heads off, so I figured I’d BBQ it. But I didn’t get to, so I stumbled upon your recipe instead. I added a layer of sliced brown mushrooms and diced sweet cebollas underneath with a small side of baby bok chok, Also a good handful of italian flat leaf parsely. thaks for a delicious idea!
