  • 2 salmon fillets
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon honey or maple syrup (optional, for a touch of sweetness)
  • Fresh parsley, for garnish

  1. Preheat Your Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the Salmon: Place the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  3. Prepare the Lemon and Dill Mixture: In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, honey (if using), and half of the chopped dill.
