Salmon Baked in Sour creamw/ Dill
1.5# Salmon fillet I allow 1/2# per person
Salt and pepper
1.5 cups sour cream
1/3 tsp celery salt
1Tbsp grated onion
1Tbsp fresh dill or about 1/2 if dry
1lemon sliced paper thin
remove skin from fillet, salt and a bit of pepper, lay in a casserole [well greased]
Now combine sour cream w/ celery salt, onion and dill. Spread over the fillets. garnish with the lemon slices dusted w/paprika.
Bake in preheated 350 oven for about 30 minutes. I like my salmon rare so I will bake to 120 degrees you may like it more done so decide for your self
This recipe comes from an old James Baird book. I use a version that I made changes to years ago. My version of the sauce is I don't use celery salt and I thin the sour cream with lemon juice. This is also a good prep for halibut and other white fish. I have done it with rockfish and used fennel with the dill.
I serve with baby reds boiled and a cucumber salad.
Today the first of the season Alaska king came in [white] I'm going to grill it and serve with a Mango salsa and some sugar snap peas alongside. Can't wait for supper!
May you eat well,
