Way back when, a thousand or so years ago, Europeans believed that dill warded away witches and defended against spells. That was a long time ago; no need to resort to hocus-pocus to enjoy the anise-esque flavor of dill. The herb is paired, as it so often is, with salmon, specifically a stupendous dill crema that dots every bite with delight. This dish is delightful, and as a bonus, it'll keep you from being turned into a toad! What, we said no need to resort to hocus-pocus. We just want to.
