Baked Lemon Salmon in Sour Cream Sauce - Improv

Today is the third Thursday and the Improv group, organized by Kristin of Frugal Antics of A Harried Housewife, is sharing recipes with lemon and sour cream.  Of course, my first reaction was a baked dessert but I decided, I wanted to change my ways, so to speak.  I am thrilled that I did.  This is a delicious way to make salmon.  The dill added to the lemon and sour cream give it additional life.

Baked Lemon Salmon in Sour Cream Sauce
4 salmon fillets 
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon very finely minced onion
 1/4 teaspoon salt
dash pepper    
1/4 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon fresh chopped dill
1/2 teaspoon additional lemon juice
Place salmon in a buttered baking dish. 
Combine lemon juice and onion.
Sprinkle a little over salmon fillets. 
Season with pepper. 
Bake at 350° for about 20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily.
Remove from oven. 
Mix lemon juice and sour cream and spread sour cream over salmon. 
Sprinkle with fresh dill. 
Return to the oven for 3 minutes.
Serve with a green salad, cucumbers or tomatoes.
