Questions & Replies

  1. Does anyone know if this can be used for Sockeye Salmon?


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Super-easy, low-fat, great taste - all I want from a recipe! We did not have time to let the sauce components stand for an hour, but the recipe still worked well. Really enjoyed it!
  5. Tasty, moist fish. And easy, too. What's not to like?


  1. Easy to prepare and really delicious. I also replaced the onions with shallots and got very good results. Sauce has a great, rich consistency without being at all goopy or heavy. Will make this again!
  2. Fresh dill is very important! Even with light sour cream, this makes an incredible thick, rich, restaurant-quality sauce. I substituted shallots for the onion and garlic to complement the salmon. Perfect cooking time and directions. A new favorite!
  3. This is really good! I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream and it was delicious! I'll make this again for sure! Thanks!
