Salmon with Savoury Mustard Sauce

Yields6 Servings

Our Salmon with Savoury Mustard Sauce includes those heart healthy omega-3s and gets its flavour from pepper, shallots, dill, whole grain or Dijon mustard, lemon juice and zest, as well as vinegar; so you can hold back on the salt if you need to, because there’s a lot of flavour already there! Serve with some whole grains and leafy greens and you’re off to a great heart healthy and balanced start. Steelhead trout lovers can substitute the salmon with trout.

Salmon with Savoury Mustard Sauce

 1 cup canola oil
 2 large shallots, chopped
 ¼ cup chopped fresh dill
 kosher salt, to taste
 black pepper, to taste
 ½ cup light sour cream
 ¼ cup whole-grain or Dijon mustard
 1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
 2 Tbsp white vinegar
 ¼ cup canola oil
 4 ¼ lbs salmon fillet, with skin on

In a bowl, whisk oil with shallots and dill. Season with salt and pepper. Pour 2/3 marinade onto rimmed baking sheet. Add fish, skin side up. Spread the remaining marinade over skin. Cover. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.


In bowl, whisk sour cream with mustard, lemon zest, lemon juice, vinegar and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate sauce until chilled, about 15 minutes.


Preheat broiler and position a rack 6 inches from the heat.


Scrape marinade off fish and transfer fish, skin down, to another large rimmed baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper.


Broil fish about 12 minutes, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the fillet registers 125°F.


Let fish rest for 10 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter. Serve with mustard sauce.
