This straightforward dish is a nod to the simple yet delicious cuisine of Scandinavia where salmon with dill is a classic pairing. The dill sauce is composed of only four ingredients and comes together in a flash – the majority of the work is only chopping dill. The creamy, herbaceous sauce is perfect over the salmon as well as the baby potatoes and asparagus. We think this meal is bright, fresh, and satisfying – perfect for any night of the week!

Can I substitute frozen asparagus if that’s what I already have on hand?

Is it required to vacuum seal the salmon? Also, I noticed the recipe is designed for the 1st gen Suvie. We ordered the 2nd gen. Would the potatoes just be cooked in the “starchie”? Thanks!
