Garlic & Dill Salmon

I prepared the following for dinner guests and it was a cinch to make for a weeknight. If you're a fan of salmon, you'll definitely like this recipe! The only change I made to the original recipe was adding some capers since it adds some extra flavor.

Garlic & Dill Salmon
recipe adapted from AllRecipes

2 (1.5 pound) salmon fillets
1 head garlic, peeled
1 ounce fresh dill, chopped
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon capers
1 teaspoon salt and pepper to taste

In a food processor, process garlic to a rough mince, add dill and olive oil and pulse a few times to combine.

Lay fish fillets in a baking dish, skin side down. Rub garlic mixture over fish and top with capers. Refrigerate for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees F).

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Do not overcook.
