Broiled Dill Salmon Recipe

  1. In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, lemon juice, salt, dill, and red pepper. Stir well.
  2. Preheat the oven broiler and move the oven rack so that it sits five inches from the heat source.
  3. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and then place the salmon steaks on it. Alternately, a jelly roll pan lined with aluminum foil works just as well and may prevent dripping while cooking.[4]
  4. Brush the steaks with half of the seasoned butter mixture from the bowl.
  5. Place the salmon in the oven and broil for 5 to 10 minutes with the oven door open.
  6. Adjust the oven temperature to 400 degrees, close the oven door, and bake the salmon for 5 to 8 minutes more.
  7. Remove the steaks from the oven and brush with the remaining seasoned butter. Serve.

Salmon with Mustard Dill Sauce

In this recipe, cooks grill the dilled salmon fillets instead of broiling them.


  • Red Lobster recommends serving this dish with either a light lager beer or Chenin Blanc wine.[3]
  • When using fresh dill, as in this recipe, cooks should avoid washing it until they’re ready to use it. Dill should be stored in the refrigerator in a plastic bag for no more than 7 to 10 days. When chopping fresh dill, cooks should not cut the stems too finely.[5]
  • If you prefer not to use the broiler, you can simply preheat the oven to 400 degrees in step 2. Then bake the seasoned fish for 20 to 25 minutes, skipping the broiling step. If you're worried about a possible mess from cooking the fish on a baking sheet, you can substitute a 13 x 9 baking dish instead.[6]
  • For a slight recipe variation, consider making a lemon dill sauce for garnish. Omit the dill in the fish seasoning mixture and combine 6 ounces of plain Greek yogurt with 1/8 cup of chopped fresh dill, 2 tbsp. of lemon juice, and 1 chopped garlic clove. Serve the mixture over each cooked fish fillet.[7]
  • Cucumber dill sauce also works well with this broiled salmon dish. Make your own by mixing plain yogurt, chopped cucumber, diced tomato, lemon juice, minced garlic, and curry powder.[8]
  • Mustard dill sauce is another topping that suits this entree. Combine sour cream, fresh dill, diced onions, minced garlic, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper to make a quick a mustard sauce.[9]

Broiled Dill Salmon is a main dish entrée only, so you might want to include a couple of other restaurant signature side dishes along with it such as Red Lobster’s Rice Pilaf or KFC’s Bean Salad.
