Salmon and Dill Sauce

When I first got married and was beginning to really cook for my husband and myself, I was at a complete loss for ideas aside from the ones that my mom had put together in a recipe box for me as part of my shower gift.  I was shopping for produce one day around that time when I noticed a display of free recipe cards.  I grabbed one of each and tried them all.  Some of those recipes are still in my regular rotation, like this one.  The salmon is simple to prepare; it is the dill sauce that really makes this recipe a stand out.  It does make quite a bit of sauce, so I often halve the sauce recipe.

The parsley is not in the picture...sorry!  
  • 4 salmon fillets
  • oil
  • salt & pepper
Dill sauce:
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 tsp dried dill
  • 1-1/2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, minced (I don't always include this)
  • 1 scallion, minced
  • 1/4 tsp ground white pepper
  1. Coat the salmon fillets lightly with oil and season with salt and pepper.  Grill over a white charcoal fire or under a broiler, turning once, until the salmon is just cooked through - about 8-10 minutes.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine mayo and sour cream, dill, parsley, scallion, lemon juice, salt and pepper.  Serve on the side of the salmon.

Difficulty: Very easy
Time: 15 minutes
Source: This recipe was from a recipe card that I got at a local grocery store many years ago.
