Herb-Crusted Salmon with Lemon Dill Sauce


For the Herb Crust:
  • 4 salmon fillets
  • 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
For the Lemon Dill Sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).

  2. Prepare the Herb Crust: In a bowl, combine breadcrumbs, chopped parsley, chopped dill, lemon zest, salt, and black pepper. In a separate small bowl, mix together Dijon mustard and olive oil.

  3. Coat the Salmon: Pat the salmon fillets dry with paper towels. Brush each fillet with the Dijon mustard and olive oil mixture. Press the herb breadcrumb mixture onto the top of each fillet to form a crust.

  4. Bake the Salmon: Place the herb-crusted salmon fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the salmon is cooked through and the crust is golden brown.

  5. Prepare the Lemon Dill Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, chopped dill, capers, fresh lemon juice, salt, and black pepper.

  6. Serve: Once the salmon is done, transfer the fillets to plates, and drizzle each with a generous spoonful of the Lemon Dill Sauce.

  7. Garnish and Enjoy: Garnish the salmon with additional fresh dill and lemon wedges. Serve the herb-crusted salmon with your favorite sides, such as roasted vegetables, quinoa, or a light salad.

The Herb-Crusted Salmon with Lemon Dill Sauce offers a delightful combination of flavors that pairs harmoniously with the elegance of Galiano Pinot Noir. The herb crust adds a savory touch to the salmon, while the lemon dill sauce provides a zesty and refreshing contrast, enhancing the overall dining experience.
