Sour Cream & Dill Sauce to Serve With Salmon

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by echo echo

I prefer to make this sauce ahead to give the flavors time to blend together. I've usually served this with salmon baked with a combination of white wine, tarragon, dill & shallots or scallions. I'm posting this the way it originally came to me, but nowadays I would omit the salt and let others add it at the dinner table.

I was looking for a dipping sauce for smoked salmon and Jan suggested this. It was perfect for our Christmas Day. I did increase the amount of capers slightly and added an extra squeeze of lemon but other than that, followed the recipe exactally. Fabulous flavour.
