Ingredients

Servings:
4
3/4 cup(s)
sour cream
2 tsp
Dijon mustard
1
garlic clove, minced
2 tblsp
lemon juice
4 tblsp
olive oil, divided, plus more if needed
2 tblsp

1/2 tsp

4½ - 5 oz skin-on salmon fillets
2 tblsp

Directions 4 steps | 15 Minutes

Step 1

Prepare the dill sauce. In a bowl, whisk together the sour cream, Dijon mustard, minced garlic, lemon juice, two tablespoons olive oil, fresh dill, ½ teaspoon salt and ½ teaspoon pepper. Mix well to loosen the sour cream and adjust the consistency with more olive oil, if needed. Set aside

Step 2

Clean the salmon and pat dry on a paper towel. Make two cuts on the skin side of the fillet to help the skin crisp when cooking. Season the salmon with salt and pepper.

Step 3

In a skillet on medium heat, heat the remaining two tablespoons of olive oil. Place the salmon, skin-side down, into the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Flip the fillet over and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until the salmon is cooked through.

Step 4

Remove the salmon from the skillet onto serving plates. Serve with the dill sauce on the side or over the fillet. Garnish with fresh dill and serve with lemon wedges, if desired. Enjoy!
