Dill Salmon Veggies Pockets Recipe Video

Simple, nutritious and delicious, this is one of my favorite recipes for salmon. Aside from the fact that this dish looks like you spent the entire day in the kitchen (which you won’t!) there’s the added bonus of having far fewer dishes to wash afterwards.

Recipe Story

Dill has long been cultivated as a herb throughout Europe and north Africa as well as in its native Asia. It was used by Egyptian doctors 5000 years ago and traces have been found in Roman ruins in Great Britain. In the Middle Ages it was thought to protect against witchcraft. The name dill is thought to have originated from a Norse or Anglo-Saxon word 'dylle' meaning to soothe or lull, the plant having the carminative property of allaying pain.
