Dilled Lemon Salmon

We’ve been getting a lot of dill lately in our CSA box and can’t use it fast enough. I need to find a great sauce or something similar to make a ton of it and freeze it before it goes bad. Any suggestions out there?

In any case, this was a great, easy, healthy recipe to use up some of our dill. I’ve found that it goes really well with salmon and so it’s become a great go-to way to use it up. We served this with our delicious kale-potato cakes and sauteed zucchini and summer squash (with toasted sliced almonds and grated Parmesan — my new fave way to eat zucchini!). A great summer dinner!
