Group enjoy healthy food.A delicious way to celebrate the perfect partnership of salmon, dill, and tart citrus, this dish not only tastes great, but offers a mixture of healing ingredients. Salmon is packed full of protein, omega 3 fatty acids, and vitamin D—a combination that promotes your natural healing process and is also anti-inflammatory. The citrus in the recipe provides a wide range of benefits, from helping to balance the body’s pH to offering anti-viral properties.

The original inspiration for this recipe was a dish I had at a restaurant in St. Thomas called “Salmon with Four-Citrus Sauce.” I have tinkered with the preparation and made many variations over the past 20+ years, so there’s no telling how close the current version would be to the original dish. One thing has stayed constant—it’s always delicious! Best of all, it requires very little preparation and can be made in one pan as a quick restorative dinner or to enjoy with company.
