Greek Salmon with Lemon and Dill Ingredients :

  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 fresh salmon fillets
  • ½ teaspoon salt

How To Make Greek Salmon with Lemon and Dill


Mix the extra virgin olive together with the black pepper, the chopped fresh dill, and fresh oregano together in a non-metallic bowl. Stir well then add in the zest and juice of the lemon.


Place the salmon fillets into the marinade and turn them to coat. Set them aside in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes and up to 3 hours.


Once the salmon has marinated, place a heavy paced frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat and allow it to get hot.


Season the salmon fillets with the salt and then place the salmon presentation side down into the pan.


Cook undisturbed for 3 minutes. Carefully flip the salmon and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Recipe Notes:

You can use dried herbs in place of the fresh, just use 2 teaspoons of each instead.

We prefer this dish with skin off salmon fillets because the marinade stops the skin from crisping up and soggy fish skin is gross!
