    Salmon with Dill Sauce


    Be the first to make this!

    Poaching gives wonderfully moist, delicate results and helps to bring out the flavour of the fish, so all it needs is a spoonful of fragrant sauce.

    Serves: 4 

    • 100ml dry white wine
    • 100ml chicken or fish stock
    • 2 spring onions, sliced
    • 8 black peppercorns
    • 4 skinless salmon fillets, each about 125g
    • 2/3 cup sour cream
    • 1/2 lebanese cucumber, diced
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
    • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper
    • To serve
    • mixed salad leaves
    • wedges of lemon
    • sprigs of fresh dill to garnish

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Pour 1 1/2 cups of water into a large frying pan and add the wine, stock, spring onions and peppercorns. Put the salmon fillets in the pan in a single layer. Bring to the boil, then immediately reduce the heat, cover and simmer gently for 5–6 minutes until the fish flakes when tested with a fork.
    2. Meanwhile, to make the sauce, stir together the sour cream, cucumber, dill and lemon juice in a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
    3. Arrange the salad leaves on four serving plates. Carefully lay the salmon fillets on top, using a slotted spoon. Drizzle a little of the sauce over the top and serve with lemon wedges and some sprigs of dill for garnish.
