Salmon—and most seafood—and dill is a hard combo to beat. Try making an herb butter by whipping 1 stick of softened butter with 2 tablespoons of fresh chopped dill and 1 clove of minced garlic. Leave it whipped or place the butter in plastic wrap, shape into a tube, and chill until firm and sliceable.
