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.

Prepare the Ingredients
Trim ends off green beans.
Zest and halve lemon. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.
Pat salmon fillets dry, and season flesh side with ½ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Start the Green Beans
Toss green beans with garlic, 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper on prepared baking sheet. Massage oil into green beans.
Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.
