Most people buy salmon in pre-sliced portions. Cooking a whole side of salmon at once helps retain the fish’s fattiness and makes it more flavorful. When choosing salmon, look for white, fatty lines in the flesh. The thicker the lines are, the more flavor the salmon will have.


Main ingredients

  • 1 side of salmon

  • salt, to taste

  • 1/2 bunch fresh dill, finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic, such as Mr. Dipz Peeled Garlic, thinly sliced

Cucumber-Dill Chutney

  • 1 large English cucumber

  • 1 clove garlic, such as Mr. Dipz Peeled Garlic

  • 1/2 – 1 habanero pepper (depending on how hot you like it)

  • 1/2 bunch fresh dill (or cilantro, if you prefer)

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 heaping teaspoon Gefen Honey

  • 1 fresh lemon, juiced


Prepare the Salmon


Lay the salmon on a tray and pat dry. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chopped dill. Add sliced garlic and drizzle with olive oil. Cover fish with wax paper or Gefen Parchment Paper and refrigerate for 30 minutes.


Preheat oven to 365°F (185°C). Remove paper from fish and bake for 35 minutes. Serve hot or cold with the chutney.


For the chutney, grate the cucumber. Place in a strainer and press down to squeeze out excess water. Place garlic, habanero, and dill in a food processor using the s-blade and process until finely ground. Transfer to a bowl with the grated cucumber. Add spices, honey, and lemon juice and mix well. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before serving.
