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.
Pan Seared Salmon with Dill Sour Cream Sauce
- 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
- Season the salmon with salt and pepper.
- Heat the oil in a pan.
- Sear the salmon on both sides in the pan (about 5 minutes on the skin side followed by 2 minute on the other side).
- Mix the sour cream, dill, pickle and lemon juice.
- 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.

Kevin, you’re right…our salmon dishes are similar…we share the same good taste! lol
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 🙂
