Creamy Lemon Garlic Salmon

Dill’s vivid taste is best for this creamy sauce. But in case you’re no longer a huge fan, we advise the use of something like thyme as an alternative! Chives or parsley could also work, but their presence wouldn’t be as bold. be as assertive.
If you’re trying to devour more healthy, strive our baked Garlic Butter Salmon alternatively. (Don’t fear, there is now not surely a ton of butter.)
