This lemon dill sauce requires just a few ingredients and a quick stir! It’s so easy, yummy, and pairs beautifully with seafood!

I first created this recipe as part of my Salmon Sweet Potato Stacks with Lemon Dill Sauce. (Those babies are gooooood. I highly recommend you try them if you haven’t yet!) But the Lemon Dill Sauce really deserves it’s own spot on the blog because it can be used with any seafood!

To make this, you’ll just need to stir together 6 ingredients! That’s it! It couldn’t be any easier.

It’s dairy free and refined sugar free (unless you use cow’s milk or a mayo that contains dairy or sugar). Some of my favorite healthy store bought mayos are Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil MayoTessemae’s Organic MayoChosen Foods Classic Mayo, and Sir Kensington’s Avocado Oil Mayo. There are more great options out there! Just read your labels!

I know one question some of you may have is whether you can use dried dill instead of fresh. The answer is yes. Since dried herbs are more potent than fresh you won’t want to use as much. As a general rule, you should use 1/3 less if going with dried. So for this particular recipe that means you could use 1/2 tbsp dried dill instead of 1 1/2 tbsp fresh dill. Having said that, the flavor of the dill is really important in this sauce so I do recommend fresh dill here if possible.

Need some ideas for how to serve this deliciously simple sauce? Drizzle it over any seafood! Salmon is my favorite for this sauce. You’ll also love it on sautéed asparagus! Use it as a dip for any fried fish or fish sticks!
