Dijon Dill Cream Sauce

>> Monday, November 23, 2009

You would have thought that the secret ingredient in my apartment last night was dill. I have a compulsion when I buy fresh herbs to use them immediately and in as many dishes as possible. A fresh herb is a terrible thing to waste :)

Inspired by an episode I saw on 30 minute meals, this dijon dill sauce is a great compliment to any salmon dish, and it's incredibly easy to make. With only four ingredients and about 5 minutes, there is no reason why you can't try this sauce tonight :)

Ingredients (for TWO people - that's right didn't cook this one just for me!):

  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon for dijon mustard (that may be a lot for some people, but I love dijon mustard)
  • 1-2 tablespoons of freshly chopped dill
  • 2 teaspoons of capers

Pretty straight forward - mix together in a bowl and chill before serving on top of fish :)

This is the perfect partner for the lemon-dill salmon I posted earlier in the month. With our meal I made some smashed potatoes, very similar to the potato salad from this summer and some pan roast mushrooms. The creamy, cool, sauce was a nice compliment to the buttery fish and the addition of the capers added a salty bite.

I will be making this sauce over and over again.
