Salmon with dill sauce

Back when I worked at an ad agency, a lot of magazines crossed my desk.  I’d flip through them and tear out pages of recipes to make, exercises to do, and accessories to buy.  Most of them eventually ended up in the trash, but “10 ways to cook salmon” has somehow stuck with me.

Tonight, I decided to try one of those ways.

Just season a salmon filet with salt and pepper (I removed the skin).  Then sauté it in olive oil for about 6 minutes on each side.

Mix together:

1/2 cup sour cream (I used plain greek yogurt)

2 tbsp. lemon juice

2 tbsp. chopped fresh dill

2 tbsp. chopped capers (I left these out b/c I didn’t have any)

Voila! Pretty easy, right?  Just add some veggies and you’ve got a healthy weeknight meal.

Verdict: This is good, but my favorite salmon recipe is still my pecan-crusted salmon.  I’ll share that recipe soon 🙂

  1. Looks great – awesome pictures… Just curious, why did you take off skin? just preference?

    I made a great salmon saltimbocca that’s super easy – put a sage leaf on a salmon filet, wrap a slice of prosciutto around it and sauté. I never got around to blogging recipe on it, but a pic is on the FB page.

  2. It’s really just personal preference. I don’t like to eat it, and I think it cooks a little better without it, too. Your saltimbocca recipe sounds delish!
