5 Ingredient 10 Minute Creamy Dill Salmon

I haven’t made a 5 ingredient recipe in a while. I apologize for that. But it’s sometimes hard to come up with recipes that taste really good with such few ingredients. Flavor comes from different spice and herbs, that’s why I add them to my recipe. But thankfully, some wonderful companies out there have already packaged tasty items to make our life easier. Like in this recipe. Instead of making my own mayo, I got lazy and found an amazing product at Whole Foods called Sir Kensington’s. Yes, the product has some sugar in it, so instead of complaining, you can just make your own with my 30 second mayo recipe! Issue solved. You’re welcome. I’m a genius.

Speaking of genius, did you see the Jimmy Fallon and Paul Rudd skit the other night at The Tonight Show? My lord, it was wonderful. They are probably two of my newest favorite people. I can’t decide who I like more. But both of them are hilarious. I can’t seem to stay up until 10:30pm, so I fall asleep on the couch until I hear something funny and then see about 2 minutes of a funny part of the show. I really should just start DVR’ing. Is that a word? Doesn’t matter. What does matter is how genius of a comedian Jimmy Fallon is. He makes me want to stay up past the 10 o’clock hour and not many things do that.

I need a vacuum. Are there places to find a vacuum that aren’t super expensive? I would love to just buy it on Amazon like I do with everything else, like the sticky bras I bought the other day (those are awesome fyi) but my new building I live in has made it rather difficult. It’s a secured building so you either need a code or a little key fabe thingy. Well, Fedex doesn’t have those two things, so when they come to my building, they leave a note on the outside door saying they attempted to leave the package. Well, I always leave through the garage, so I never actually see those notes. So after three attempts, they ship my package back to Amazon. What in the hell. I ordered a package 3 weeks ago (2 day shipping) and I’m still dealing with getting it. All this for a damn office chair that I could have just picked up at a store. Blasphemy I tell you!

Did anyone see the last episode of The Bachelor on Tuesday. That was awesome. I haven’t really watched this season because it’s painfully boring and Juan Pablo is painfully dull, but when I heard it was good, I onDemanded that sh*t. I was hoping someone would just leave. I don’t know how most girls lasted that long. Of course the two crazy ones are left. They’re just so insane, all they care about is actually winning at this point, not that Juan Pablo is a total bore. I get it. I’m competitive too, sometimes. I think crazy eyes is going to win. Crazy eyes Claire. I’m such a good name giver. I don’t think I’ll watch the finale, but I definitely will tune in for the show with all the booted women. Those shows are always the best. It’s like listening to a herd of screaming cats, but somehow is enjoyable.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Can you ship your FedEx packages to your workplace? That’s what I used to do when I lived in a place that had issues with porch-thefts.

    1. It’s so cool that Lexi leaves comments on your blog! I follow you both… I had done a salmon similar to this “pre-paleo”. But now, good to know I can still make it with the good stuff! It looks sooooooo good. That baked on creamy goodness up on top with dill, oh yum… dill. I love you.

  2. I eyeballed salmon today at the store. Dang it, should have gotten it.
    So going on a stupid long flight back to Florida, and def don’t want to eat airplane nastiness…. How do you do it?

    1. i take LOTS of snacks with me when i travel. i take plantain chips, jerky from steve’s paleo, i make muffins and bring them with sometimes. as many snack foods as i can pack, i pack them

  3. The last episode is totally worth watching 🙂 so glad someone else finds him extremely unappealing and dull…

    Also, I don’t like mayo or salmon but…this looks so good I think I’ll make it anyways!

  4. Dyson Animal DC41! You can get it at Sams or Costco for 400-ish, if you have those out there. Online its just under 500. I recently asked around for months about a new vacuum and settled on this one after much debate. It took me a long time to finally bite the bullet and spend that much money on a vacuum. But if you buy a crap one, then you’ll just have to replace it in a few years. I know several people that own this one, and it seems to be the best for the price (even though it is still pricey).

      1. I was gonna say the Dyson Animal myself. I got a factory refurbished one on Overstock.com. It was 1/2 the price, and you still get a Dyson warranty!!

  5. I work at the same hospital as Nikki from the Bachelor and it’s been fun hearing all the crazy real-world things about her. Turns out she’s not the nicest in real life either haha

      1. You’re so awesome! Thanks so much for replying to my little question. I was so excited about your recipe I didn’t read your post first. But I agree agree with others Dyson Animal. We also got ours refurbished from Woot years ago and it’s great although I would have never paid full price for it, love it but dang expensive. However a friend just got one from Bed Bath and Beyond with the handy coupon they send out and she said it was the best price around, she’s super analytical so I believe her. Love Amazon Prime it’s the best but I suppose not so good in your situation, but YAY for the new place!

  6. A Dyson for sure–price tag looks scary, but worth EVERY PENNY! I have 2 large dogs, and 2 cats and just have the regular Dyson Ball, not the Animal and mine still picks up hair just fine so I don’t think the extra money for the Animal model is worth it. Also, like the comment earlier, if you have a Sam’s/Costco membership that will for sure be the best price you’ll find. They rarely go “on sale” anywhere unless it’s a Black Friday special.

  7. Kirby. Kirby. Kirby. Don’t think about it. Buy one. You’ll never have to buy another vacuum again for the rest of your life. (Seriously though. I see vintage ones for sale that still work) crazy!

    1. I agree that kirby’s are a great vacuum – I used to sell them over a decade ago. However, my mother has the dyson animal ball, and I am in love with it. It weighs an eighth of the kirby and turns on a dime, literally. Even my husband loves it, and that says alot. I was using my mother in laws kirby for a while to shampoo my carpets, because she couldn’t use it – it was too heavy for her to keep getting in and out the closet. She eventually gave it away to her son $1500 worth of vacuum, just gave it away

  8. You know, I haven’t cooked in ages, and this may just be exactly what I needed to get me back in the kitchen. Thank you thank you!

  9. Not sure if Amazon operates the same in Colorado, but in my area they have these lockers you can have your package delivered to. The closest one to me is at the nearby convenience store. It’s worth checking out!

  10. We bought our vacuum at Sears. A cheap one because when it breaks from all the animal hair it has to suck in all at once we won’t be crying but throwing it out without hesitancy to buy another one!!

    I love Jimmy Fallon but like you can not stay up so I just see clips on the news-on the news? What the bleep?! Best thing about the news in my book!!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. I also recommend a Dyson! My boyfriend’s mom bought us one for Christmas after she found out that we had borrowed our neighbors to vacuum. On Amazon you can also buy the factory refurbished and it works great… what a steal for a high qualify vacuum that transitions seamlessly between hardwood and carpet.

    Also Juan Pablo might be THE most boring yet. The only two girls that were Not bimbos on this season have both left by choice because they realize that JP is bland, and if they bring up any serious topics of conversation he just tries to kiss them instead!

    I just started tuning in to your blog about 2 months ago but all of your recipes that I’ve tried have been awesome & your blog entries are hilarious!

  12. Juli, we have purchased two vacuums (at different times) from Vacuum Repair Shops. We got great advice and great prices on refurbished vacuums.
    This recipe sounds great. Thank you!

  13. I do my cooking for the week on Sundays (today). Will this do will reheated if I cook it all at once? I noticed you say “serve immediately” and with the mayo I’m not sure if it will stay in the fridge and reheat properly. Thanks!!

  14. Juli, you are on a roll of posting recipes that I can eat, with all of my food allergies/sensitivities! Thank you so much! Yours is my favorite Paleo webpage.

  15. Made this last night with keta salmon and squeezed lemon juice over the fillets before putting the dill sauce on it. Wow! My kids were begging for more.

  16. this was so good! i would never think to put mayo on salmon but it works. i had it for breakfast with some sauerkraut. followed the recipe to a T and made your mayo, too. i LOVE my immersion blender. i had previously tried a mayo recipe with just the yolk and it did not work at all. it needs the whole egg to actually turn into mayo and not yellow sauce.

  17. So glad I came across this today (one link leads to another, etc.). Salmon in my fridge waiting to be transformed into this deliciousness tonight!

  18. This recipe is INCREDIBLE! This was my first time making salmon, and I can attest that this recipe is great for beginners. SO easy!! I did, however, make one enormous change. I went to Whole Foods and they had Sir Kensington’s ketchup, but not mayo, so I subbed with “Garlic & Herb Lemonaise” and omitted salt, pepper, garlic powder, & dill since the ingredients contained herbs, salt, & garlic already. Oh MY it was out of this WORLD! Is it paleo friendly? I’m not entirely sure, though it does seem as though it has popped up on a few paleo sites. Either way, it was all natural and the idea would never have come to me had it not been from this post. Your recipes are amazing!

  19. This was awesome! Don’t typically like mayo but your 30 s. recibe is incredible. Can’t wait for your new cook book, I am a big fan of your website!

  20. I made this last night. It was a great, quick recipe for when I was already exhausted from work and hitting the gym—a true lifesaver. It turned out delicious, and this is the first time I’ve ever found mayonnaise to be palatable. Good job!

  21. I haven’t seen anyone else ask about this….you say use parchment paper but my package says use at temps below 400 degrees…did your parchment burn? Is 450 degrees ok? I’m now not sure how to keep the salmon from sticking to the pan.

  22. I want to try making my own mayo but I don’t have an immersion blender… would a food processor work too? Or maybe an electric mixer using just once of the mixers? Any advice is much appreciated!

  23. I’ve been on Paleo for 3+ wks and haven’t lost any weight. I feel better but I would’ve liked an added benefit! Im a great home cook/chef and been inspired by your creations. Any advise?

    1. since I don’t know anything about you or what your daily routine is like, i can’t recommend anything. and that’s not really my background. personally, i workout 4-6 times per week doing crossfit and eat paleo 80/20 and that works for me. sorry i can’t help more with just the information i know about you

  24. Hi Juli,

    Re: Amazon not able to drop off at your apartment: you can have your stuff shipped to an Amazon Locker, then you can pick it up. Might be an option for bulky stuff for you.

    Dumb iPad won’t let me paste in the link. Just google “Amazon locker”. Hope that helps!


  25. Hi! It looks delicious! What would you serve on the side with the salmon? Thanks. By the way loooooove your site.
    Greetings from Montreal ☺️✌️

  26. This dish was a hit! My husband hates dill, but i love love dill especially with salmon. So i made it and he couldnt stop asking for more. Luckily we had left overs for packed lunches the next day. Ate this with cauliflower rice <3 Im from Toronto btw.

  27. So so yummy! And I loved how quickly it came together. Roasted some asparagus, rice in the pressure cooker= a full dinner seriously in 15 minutes. Amazing.

  28. Holy hell, talk about tasty! I made this last night for my salmon-skeptic girlfriend, and she LOVED it. Bookmarking under “FAVE RECIPES” on Pinterest! An easy, tasty weeknight meal in under 30 minutes. Thanks for sharing!

  29. Delicious. I even had my 9YO daughter loving it. I addd fresh lemon zest and then a squeeze of fresh lemon juice along with fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder and it was outstanding. My friend brought back from Alaska some fresh caught salmon and shared it with me – so this made it even tastier! I ate with shredded cabbage in a corn tortilla like a fish taco and was very happy I did so!
