A Light and Refreshing Sauce for Salmon or Trout
Are you looking for a quick and tasty dinner option that won’t leave you feeling weighed down? Look no further than this Creamy Dill Sauce recipe! With just a few simple ingredients, you can create a delightful sauce that pairs perfectly with salmon or trout. And the best part? It takes only 15 minutes to prepare!
A Quick and Easy Meal Option
Having a collection of super quick meals is always handy, especially when life gets busy. Fish with a flavorful sauce is an excellent choice because fish cooks so quickly. Today, I want to share with you a Creamy Dill Sauce that requires no cooking at all. It’s made with sour cream, mustard, lemon, garlic, and an abundance of fresh dill. This fresh and tangy sauce is perfect for dipping bread and veggie sticks or dolloping onto your salmon or trout.
Light and Tangy
Unlike many creamy sauces, this Dill Sauce is not heavy or overwhelming. Its light and tangy flavor profile make it an ideal accompaniment to the rich and oily nature of salmon and trout. And let’s not forget the star of the show – dill! Salmon and dill are a classic flavor pairing that never disappoints.
A Tzatziki-like Treat
If you’re a fan of tzatziki, you’ll find this Creamy Dill Sauce to be reminiscent of it, albeit with a less tangy twist. By using sour cream instead of yogurt, you achieve a smoother texture that adds a touch of luxury to your dish. Feel free to alternate between salmon and trout in this recipe, as they are quite similar in taste. Personally, I find trout to be slightly juicier (at least here in Australia).
The Perfect Accompaniments
To complete your meal, I suggest serving the Creamy Dill Sauce with some crusty bread and a lazy Zucchini Salad (recipe included in the notes below). These simple sides, combined with the flavorful sauce, make for a satisfying and complete meal that can be prepared in just 15 minutes. No need to rush around like a lunatic!
