How To Make Lemon Dill Sauce for Salmon

In a bowl whisk your fresh lemon juice, English Style mustard, and fresh dill. Or if you don’t have fresh you can use 2 teaspoons dry dill to replace the fresh. Whisk until incorporated!

If you don’t have English Style mustard you can use regular mustard or even a spicy mustard. I found the English Style mustard does really add some nice flavor to the sauce.

What To Serve With Air Fryer Salmon

I simply sauteed some sliced bell peppers and served it with my salmon. I wanted a low carb dinner for the family. But you could serve it with almost anything.

Instant Pot Duo Crisp with Air FryerHow Do You Cook Salmon In Instant Pot Duo Crisp with Air Fryer

You want to use the crisping lid and the air fryer settings when you cook your salmon. Depending on the thickness of your salmon will depend on how long to cook. My salmon was around 1-1/2 inch fillets. I did 390 degrees for about 7 minutes.

When the time is done, remove the lid, check the fillets with a fork, and if not quite done cook a bit longer.

I did rub each fillet with olive oil and then seasoned. The olive oil will prevent sticking and help to give a golden texture to the salmon.

Yes, I have baked this in the oven many times. I now use the Air Fryer for cooking salmon, but I wanted to share the directions in case you love cooking in the oven.

Turn your oven to 350 degrees – then oil a casserole pan, and set your salmon fillets in the casserole pan. Make sure to leave space between each fillet. Then season your salmon, and bake for 20 minutes or until they are cooked to your doneness.

Then prep the lemon dill sauce and spoon over right before serving.

If you have leftover salmon, you are welcome to store it in the fridge for up to three days. I do recommend leaving the dill sauce off, until you heat and then spoon it over the top. If you spoon the sauce over the salmon it will be hard to reheat.

You can warm you salmon up in the microwave or even toss it in the oven to reheat or skillet on the stove.
