Dill Sauce with a Little Salmon

8 Mar

by Green Gourmet K

There are certain dishes that my parents make that have shown up on our dinner table as long as I can remember, and many of them I have adopted.  Whenever my Dad bakes salmon he usually makes a dill sauce to go with it.  Even now, unless it’s some specially prepared salmon, it just doesn’t taste right to me without the dill sauce.  Here’s how I make it.

Dill Sauce for Salmon

(for four servings of salmon)

8 oz. sour cream (full fat or low fat) or you can substitute good plain yogurt

3 tbsp. chopped dill

juice of half of a lemon

pinch of salt and ground pepper

Refrigerate until salmon is ready.  Add a dollop of this sauce on top of each salmon steak.  It will take your salmon to the next level.  Salmon with dill sauce is a very springtime dish in my mind, so next time it’s on sale, or you’re looking for something special to serve for dinner, try it out.

Let us know what you think!

Side note: I have not tried this yet but it occurred to me that the leftover sauce (as long as it did not touch fish) could be turned into salad dressing and served over lettuce and leftover cold salmon. I would add some more lemon to thin it out.

    This looks fanstastic! I’m not a huge fan of dill, but sparingly and on salmon, it’s pretty killer.
