We love salmon, and this is probably one of the easiest salmon recipes! We’ve made it baked in the oven, and also most recently we’ve grilled it, too. Both ways are great! Enjoy!
Baked Salmon with Mustard-Dill Sauce
Adapted from Bon Appetit, July 1998
1 cup fat free sour cream (I use Lily brand – has no added thickeners)
1/3 cup chopped fresh dill
3 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 1 1/2-pound center-cut wild salmon fillet with skin
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1. Whisk sour cream, dill, onion and mustard in small bowl to blend. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature 1 hour.
2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil baking sheet. Place salmon, skin side down, on prepared sheet. Sprinkle with garlic, salt and pepper; spread with 1/3 cup sauce. Bake salmon until just opaque in center, about 20 minutes. Serve with remaining sauce.
**Note** Fish can also be cooked on the grill (with or without wood plank). Preheat grill (and plank, if desired). Place fish on grill, and grill for 15-20 minutes.
