Yields1 Serving
Prep Time25 minsCook Time45 minsTotal Time1 hr 10 mins

 ½ Salmon filet
 Creamy Dill & Garlic Sauce (refer to this recipe on our website)
 2 tbsp Gee or butter
 34 Medium-sized potatoes
 ½ Juice from 1/2 a lemon
 2 tbsp Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (EVO)
 23 tbsp Chopped dill (optional)
 Sea salt

1

Take the salmon out of the oven and preheat oven to 350C.

2

Take out a large cookie sheet and line with EVO or parchment paper.

3

Wash + cut potatoes into a chunky fry size.

4

Throw potatoes into a large mixing bowl with fresh squeezed lemon juice allowing to sit for a few moments.

5

Toss lemony potatoes with EVO, sea salt, and dill.

6

Place the fries on the prepared cookie sheet.

7

Bake for about 20 minutes.

8

As the fries are baking, make the "Creamy Dill & Garlic Sauce" (http://thetownbutcher.com/recipes/creamy-dill-garlic-multipurpose-dip/)

9

On high heat toss the butter into your cast Iron frying and let it reach a searing temperature

*If you are not using a cast iron pan and using a cookie sheet, place the fish on the cookie sheet skin side down and cover with the "Creamy Dill & Garlic Dip", and put it straight into the oven for about 15 minutes.

10

Place the fish, skin side down into the pan, as it is sizzling spread about 3-4 heaping tablespoons of the "Creamy Dill & Garlic Sauce" onto the filet until there is a thick, even layer of it.

11

Continue searing the fish skin side down for about 2-3 minutes.

12

Turn off the element and slide your pan to the side **be careful the pan handle will be VERY HOT**

13

Remove the fries from the oven (should be done now) and turn the oven to broil.

14

Broil the fish for about 3-4 minutes until the sauce starts to brown and bubble and the middle of the filet is nearly finished (cooking time totally depends on the thickness of the fish). Taking the fish out just before it is finished is perfect since it will continue cooking as it rests.

15

Take the fish out of the oven and let it rest for a few minutes before serving with the lemon fries! Dip the fries into the sauce! Enjoy!
