Recipe: Salmon in Creamy Dill Sauce

This has become our staple Monday night meal. We buy our salmon fresh from the markets and so need to use it within a couple of days... The creamy dill sauce perfectly complements the salmon and goes well with any type of vegies you care to serve it with. Salmon is an excellent source of healthy Omega 3s, and though a little on the expensive side, is worth it if you can afford it!

Salmon in Creamy Dill Sauce (serves 2)
2 x salmon fillets (skin on!)
1t coconut oil
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup white wine
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1T chopped dill (if you can't get fresh dill, the dried stuff is just as good)

Preheat oven to 180 degreesC.
Melt the coconut oil in a pan.
When hot, add the salmon fillets (flesh side down) and brown for approx 5mins.
Flip and brown skin side for another 5mins.
Remove from pan and place on baking tray in hot oven (skin side down).
Add cream and wine to pan. Turn heat down so it doesn't boil too rapidly.
Add in garlic and dill and slowly stir.
Cook until sauce thickens.
Serve over salmon fillets with a side of mixed steamed vegies and sliced lemon.
If you have it, avocado is an excellent addition!
