Dill and Caper Salmon

One of my favourite recipes for a super easy and delicious Summer supper. Throw it all into the pan and pop in the oven. 

The extra step of crispy dill butter is completely optional but adds a really nice nutty flavour to the dish. However, to keep it simple just take out of the oven when ready and serve with a crisp green salad.

  1. Preheat the oven to it’s highest temperature.
  2. Lay the spring onion over the bottom of the pan and lay the salmon on top.
  3. Scatter in the capers, lime slices and drizzle with olive oil.
  4. Season with salt and pepper and pop in the oven, turning the temperature down to 180C. Cook for 8-12 minutes until the skin is starting to go crispy and the salmon flesh has turned light pink.
  5. To make the butter, heat the butter in a small frying pan and add the dill. Fry until the butter starts to foam and turns a nutty brown colour. Spoon over the salmon and serve with some extra fresh dill.
