Working Mom Meals #8: Baked Salmon with White Wine Dill Sauce

I am trying to eat more fish, this recipe makes it easy to do that. 
It's great for Lent or for a busy weeknight  Picture and recipe courtesy of Life's Ambrosia ( Serves 4.

•4 (5 ounce) salmon fillets, bones removed
•pepper and kosher salt
•1 lemon, sliced
•2 tablespoons butter
•2 cloves garlic, minced
•1/4 cup white wine
•1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

1.Preheat oven to 450.
2.Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick spray.
3.Place salmon fillets on the prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle fillets with kosher salt and pepper. Place 2 lemon slices on top of each fillet. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove and tent with aluminum foil for 10 more minutes. Fish will continue to cook during this time. It will flake easily when done.
4.While salmon is baking, melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add minced garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour in wine. Cook for 5 minutes or until sauce reduces by 1/3. Stir in fresh dill and remove from heat.
5.Remove lemon slices from the top of the salmon and discard. Gently slide a turner or serving spatula between the skin and the flesh of the fillet to remove the skin, it should separate very easily. Transfer to a serving platter and spoon white wine dill sauce over the top.
