Creamy, savory deliciousness. We are huge fans of salmon for all of its health benefits. Salmon is a brain-boosting, immune-boosting omega-3 powerhouse. And let’s be honest, it just tastes dang good. Especially slathered with herbed Dijon and topped with a creamy dill dressing. This dish is incredibly flavorful and the salmon stays moist, light and flaky. It’s the perfect healthy dinner.
