This dill sauce for salmon would be equally good with any other plain cooked fish.
Some fish can be a little dry or bland and a cold sauce is a good way of ‘spicing’ it up.
People often ask me ‘what sauce can I serve with fish’ well, here’s the answer – this sauce will go with any fish.
Halibut is tasty but the sauce would be a good one to serve with it.
Oily fish sometimes needs a sharp sauce to cut through the oiliness – so trout, mackerel etc would also go well with it.
If you’re going to serve a whole poached salmon, then double up the quantities – this is good for four people for a main meal, so for a buffet you would need two to three times as much.
Adjust the seasoning after chilling.
You need to dice the cucumber very finely before mixing into the sauce.
Dill sauce for salmon
2 cups sour cream
1 teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
chopped dill weed – a small handful
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon capers – chopped
1/2 cucumber – diced
Combine all the ingredients in a bowl.
There – how easy was that!
I would allow the sauce to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving.
This would make a great dip for crackers, potato chips (crisps) strips of
pepper, carrot, cucumber, trimmed radish – it’s a very versatile sauce, great for a buffet dip.
