Dill sauce topped broiled salmon would work well for the weeknight dinner. The dill sauce adds much flavor to the broiled salmon.
Yay, it’s Friday, the end of the week. I am looking forward to the long weekend. Those of us in the United States will be celebrating Labor Day. The last celebration of summer. Actually, I have been looking forward to fall. It has been a busy summer and I am hoping that fall will slow things down just a bit.
I have to confess that I am getting excited about making some comfort foods again. I have been missing the soups that I make during the cooler weather. Oh, but I will not be happy when the snow starts falling, but I guess you have to take the good with the bad.
I enjoy eating salmon. Normally we broil our salmon or put on the George Forman grill. We like it with a little lemon juice, salt, and pepper. But this time, I thought I would dress it up a bit. Dill sauce topped broiled salmon is a bit tastier than the way we usually eat it.
When eating fish I enjoy a sauce made with a mayo base. So I started out with that thought and ran with it. The sauce is full of flavor and works well with this simple broiled salmon.

- To make the Dill Sauce
- In a medium bowl combine the mayonnaise, Greek yogurt, lemon juice, onion powder, garlic powder, dill weed, and pickle relish. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
