A delicious and easy dish that pairs baked salmon with a tangy and creamy mustard dill sauce!
You know those days when commuting to and from work seems to take longer than the work day itself? Today was one of those days. I love living in NYC, but taking the subway to work can be...frustrating? Annoying? It only makes days when everything goes seamlessly that much sweeter.
I often make this salmon with creamy mustard dill sauce recipe when I want something quick and easy, and today was one of those days. I love mustard and I think it complements salmon beautifully. The mustard dill sauce is nice and tangy with a hint of spice from the mustard and garlic, which is the perfect foil for a rich and fatty piece of fish. After just 20 minutes in the oven, you've got yourself a flavorful and healthy meal!
How To Make Salmon with Creamy Mustard Dill Sauce
Whisk yogurt, dill, mustard, scallions, salt, and pepper in small bowl to blend. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Place parchment paper on baking sheet.

Recipe Tips For Success
If you don't have time to let the yogurt mixture sit for an hour, you can bring it to room temperature in the microwave. Adjust the power level to 5 and warm the mixture for 30 seconds at a time until it comes to room temperature.
Any leftover sauce can be refrigerated for up to 5 days. Add it to your favorite salad, veggie burger, or potatoes for a tangy and zesty bite!
