Pan Seared Salmon with Dill Sour Cream Sauce

Pan Seared Salmon with Dill Sour Cream Sauce

I keep meaning to eat more fish but I never seem to get around to doing it... Last week I was watching the food network and saw an episode about pan seared salmon. Seeing the amazingly seared salmon was just the nudge that I needed. I picked up some nice looking salmon along with some asparagus when I went to the market on the weekend. The salmon seared up nice and golden and crispy. It was really good. I enjoy salmon and it is easy to cook. I really should have it more often.

Ingredients:
1 serving salmon (de-boned)
1 teaspoon olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon dill (chopped)
1 tablespoon dill pickle (chopped)
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Directions:
1. Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
2. Heat the oil in a pan.
3. Sear the salmon on both sides in the pan (about 5 minutes on the skin side followed by 2 minute on the other side).
4. Mix the sour cream, dill, pickle and lemon juice.
5. Place the salmon on a plate and top with the dill sour cream sauce.

Sounds great. I really love to serve salmon with Tzatziki sauce, which is very similar to the sauce you made. My dill didn't come up this year, and I never remembered to get a new plant. Need to put that on my shopping list before it's too late.

This sauce was delicious, and I used the leftover sauce as a sauce for potato salad, and that was really yummy too! Thanks for the recipe :)

My husband recently returned from a King Salmon fishing trip and asked me to entertain his buddies using his recent catch. Success! Success! Success! I am delighted to report that the salmon dish I made using your wonderful pan seared salmon and dill was successful. Very much so. I can’t believe that I did it. Thanks. It's no doubt due to your terrific and easy-to-follow instructions. This is one those recipes most people would guard with their life. I ended up making so much by request that I had to send someone to the store to get more ingredients. lol…. Thanks :)
