I have a similiar recipe on Zaar but mine was made with mayonnaise so I decided to give this one a try. My family loves sour cream. The flavor of the sauce was great. If you don't like to much of a Dijon taste you can cut back to only 1 Tablespoon. Grilled the salmon on my George Forman grill, served it with asparagas, and bake potato. Thanks for posting.

I used sour cream and shallot, instead of onion. just as dinner was ready we had a medical emergency and had to leave. I shoved everything in the fridge. the next day the sauce was mighty powerful, but good. DH isn't a huge fish fan so he loved it.

yummy! I have made this a few times. I do not use the whole filet, but individual salmon servings instead, so I adjust the cooking time. Otherwise I follow this recipe exactly and it is absolutely delicious! I use the extra sauce to dip veggies in.
