Baked salmon with lemon-dill sauce

Lemon and dill salmon 2
One of the many perks of being being part of the sportsmen and women community is the friends you make and the food!  And I’m lucky enough to have a friend in Alaska who has sent me freshly caught halibut and salmon.  Don’t hate me!  I’m here to share a favorite recipe that can easily be applied to high quality fish you can find in the market. I hope you enjoy this simple recipe as much as we do and get inspired to start planning an Alaska trip – we need more fish!  Alaska 2016 or bust?!
