Salmon in a Creamy Dijon Chive Sauce

I decided to give the meal kit delivery service Hello Fresh a try. I had a $30 off coupon and I knew it would give me a few new ideas for dinners. This is one of the two meals I tried. Verdict: all ingredients were fresh, the salmon recipe was delicious, the potato and zucchini recipe was bland so I will not include those. Also, the pieces of salmon were quite small and not enough to feed my family of five. They only have the choice of 2 or 4 servings. The kids really liked the sauce.

Ingredients:

  • Salmon fillets
  • Bunch of chives, minced
  • 2 lemon
  • 1 cup vegetarian broth
  • 1-2 tsp dijon mustard
  • 8 TBS sour cream
  • 2 TBS butter
  • 1 TBS olive oil

Directions:

Cook the salmon fillets by patting dry with paper towel then season all over with salt and pepper. Heat 1 TBS butter and 1 TBS oil in pan over medium heat. Add salmon skin side down and cook until skin is crisp (5-7 minutes). Turn salmon over and cook until it is cooked through (1-2 minutes). Remove from pan and set aside, cover with tin foil to keep warm.

Use the same pan for the sauce. Add stock, 1 tsp mustard, and juice from 1 lemon and simmer until slightly thickened. Stir in the sourcream, 1/2 the chives and 1 TBS of butter. Season with salt and pepper and serve over your salmon. Garnish with remaining lemon and chives.
