Lemon Pepper Salmon With Dill Sauce

If you see what’s going on in the Guru Test Kitchen we make a lot of salmon. Yes my kids eat it, ok one doesn’t so I try and make it while she’s at a soccer practice, or some other night that she’s busy, and believe me most weeks it’s more than once a week that she has an after school obligation. Well anyway I really enjoy having salmon for dinner and what I love even more is super simple. This salmon recipe is just that, simple easy and most of all its yummy!
