Salmon has been a mainstay of cuisine for hundreds of years because it tastes great and can be cooked in many ways. In ancient times, indigenous coastal communities caught salmon during annual migrations for food. 

Over time, chefs have added herbs, spices, and sauces to baked salmon to enhance its natural flavor. Baked salmon is still a favorite among all ages and tastes.

  • 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice (optional)

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 375oF (190oC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, dill and salt.

  • Arrange the salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet and spread the creamy dill sauce evenly across the tops of the fish.

  • Bake for 14 to 18 minutes or until the fish is cooked through and flakes easily.

Tips for Cooking Salmon Perfectly

With a few tips, you can cook salmon perfectly. First, always start with fillets that still have their skin on. This will protect the delicate flesh while it cooks, giving you crispy skin and tender salmon.

Second, do not cook the salmon for too long; it is best when the middle is still a little translucent.

Lastly, use a nonstick pan or a cast-iron skillet that has been used a lot to keep the fillets from sticking and to make sure they cook evenly.

Health Benefits of Salmon for Women Over 50

When they turn 50, women face special health issues, such as changes in hormones and bone density. 

Due to its high omega-3 fatty acid content, salmon is an important food for keeping your heart healthy, lowering inflammation, and maybe even lowering your risk of getting chronic diseases. Omega-3s are also known to help keep your brain healthy, which is very important as you get older. 

Salmon is also a great source of high-quality protein, which is important for keeping muscle mass, which is a key part of staying mobile and lowering the risk of falling. 

Another unsung hero is the vitamin D in salmon. It helps bones stay healthy by making it easier for the body to absorb calcium, which is a key part of preventing osteoporosis.

Nutritional Value of Creamy Dill Salmon

In addition to being delicious, creamy dill salmon is a great source of many important nutrients. In addition to the health benefits of salmon, the other ingredients in this dish make it even better for you. 

Adding low-fat cream or yogurt to the sauce, for example, can make it a good source of calcium and protein without adding a lot of calories. Even though it is used in small amounts, dill adds vitamins A and C as well as flavonoids, which are known for being antioxidants. 

When you eat a piece of creamy dill salmon, you are giving your body a wide range of macronutrients and micronutrients that are good for you.
