Recipe by Charlotte J

Make this simple and tasty recipe, and you could happily clean out at least one of your almost-empty condiment jars, the Dijon mustard.

I can't say enough about this recipe -- it is fabulous and so easy to make! The only negative was that my sauce turned out watery (but the sauce tasted sooo good that I still give a 5 star rating). Next time, I will simmer the sauce for more than 3 minutes or add a little cornstarch. My husband -- who does not like dill -- gobbled up this recipe and had seconds. This is my new favorite fish recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set broiler on high.
  2. Place the salmon on a foil-lined broiler pan and season with 1 /4 teaspoon of the salt.
  3. Broil until the salmon is the same color throughout and flakes easily, 7 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, heat the oil and 1 tablespoon of butter until it melts.
  5. Add the shallot and cook until softened, about 1 minute.
  6. Add the wine and cook until REDUCED BY HALF, about 3 minutes.
  7. Reduce heat to low and whisk in the mustard, dill, pepper and the remaining salt.
  8. Remove from heat.
  9. Cut remaining butter into pieces, add to the sauce, and whisk until incorporated.
  10. Place salmon on individual plates, spoon the sauce over the top, and sprinkle with additional dill.
  11. Serve with the cucumber, if desired.
