Salmon is one of the most famous and favorite seafood everyone has tasted or at least heard about. I have grilled salmon several times. I wanted to make the pan-fried dill salmon with a grilled texture and taste.

Salmon is always intimidating with its bright colour and strong flavour. I wanted to achieve good results so that my kids will enjoy it as I am planning to include this recipe in our recipe list.

I included Indian spices with dill to subtle the strong flavour of salmon.

Dill has been used since ancient times for its amazing medicinal properties. It is commonly used for pickles, salads, and soups. This low-calorie, high nutrient, the leafy herb has a unique taste and distinct flavor. It is used in multiple cuisines.

Dill is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial effects. It helps digestion, lowers blood sugar level, induces sleep, maintains hormonal balance, and reduces cholesterol. It also prevents osteoporosis by preventing bone loss and strengthening the bone.

This herb can be used both dried and fresh. It can be stored in the freezer for future usage. Dill blends well with potato, chicken, fish, and pasta. Dill and salmon are the best combinations. However, for a fool-proof recipe, baking salmon with Dill is recommended.

The fish can also be cooked on a grill or in an oven. The recipe and its measurements remain the same.

  • Don’t add oil while cooking salmon. Salmon has enough fat content to cook. Adding oil makes the fry more oily.
  • Use the Iron Tava to get a nice golden color.
  • Cook the salmon in medium heat and cook quickly. Cooking longer period in a low flame makes the salmon harder and rather chewy than soft.
