Creamy Dill Salmon


  • 1 pound fresh salmon cut into pieces
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Quinoa flour for dredging
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth or dry white wine
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard (or more)
  • 1 cup organic half and half or cream
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill chopped finely or 1/4 teaspoon dried


  • Cut your salmon into pieces. Sprinkle each piece with the garlic powder and season with salt & pepper. Coat each piece in flour on all sides.
  • Add the oil and butter to a skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the fish. Cook the salmon for 3-4 minutes/side or until it's slightly browned. Don't overcook - the salmon shouldn't be cooked fully yet. Remove fish to a plate and set it aside.
  • Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, and Dijon mustard to the skillet. Stir until mustard has been incorporated, and let it bubble for 1-2 minutes.
  • Add the cream to the pan, along with the dill.
  • Add in the salmon and let it cook for another 3-5 minutes or so until the sauce has thickened a bit and the fish has cooked through. Season with extra salt & pepper if needed. I like to serve it with fresh chopped parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice over the fish.
