Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce is a light, delicious meal with tons of dill flavor. This is a simple meal that’s perfect for the warmer months.
The salmon is baked wrapped in foil with lemon slices, onion, and butter. It’s then topped with a cool and creamy dill sauce. I love salmon paired with a creamy sauce and this dill sauce is my favorite. It tastes like summer and I don’t think there’s any better herb to pair with salmon.
The sauce is made from a mixture of mayonnaise and sour cream for ultimate creaminess. A little onion, horseradish, lemon juice, and a whole lot of dill give it just the right flavor.
You’ll love the fresh herb and citrus flavor in this Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce. Serve with a glass of white wine for a simple, but elegant meal that’s both light and refreshing.
