An incredibly easy dill sauce with so many uses. Try it on fish, chicken, or as a condiment on your favorite sandwich. You can’t go wrong with this tangy sauce!
It’s Wednesday and that means most of us are halfway through our work week. I’m sure you’re already looking forward to the weekend and who can blame you. Weekends are meant for cooking and relaxing; good food and good times.
Well, this weekend why not try and make something a little different or special. For example, last weekend, Kim made two types of fish for lunch. She topped the salmon with this amazing dill sauce.
She told me if I liked it, we should share it on the blog. Guess what? I loved it and so here it is for everyone else to try. Most people are familiar with dill, so you probably know what you’re getting yourself into. Now, how about we quit chatting and head into the kitchen?
Dill Sauce Instructions:
Okay, as always, start by prepping your ingredients. You know what to do, right? Chop the dill, juice the lemon, and measure out the mayonnaise and Dijon mustard. Also, I would recommend making this while your fish or main dish cooks.
Once that’s done, toss all the ingredients into a mixing bowl and grab a whisk or fork. Whip everything together until you get a smooth and creamy dill sauce.
If you want, you can do this in a food processor to make it easier. Well, that’s it, your dipping sauce is done. Kim and I hope you enjoy the recipe and wish you all the best 🙂
Simple Dill Sauce Recipe Tips:
So, this recipe is pretty much, “no-fail.” There aren’t a whole lot of tips that I can offer. Even substitutions are tricky because dill has such unique flavor profile that works perfectly in cream or mayonnaise based sauces. In short, my best tip is to follow the directions and if you don’t care for one or two of the ingredients, then don’t make it.
As far as food pairings are concerned, this dill sauce would go great with salmon or as a condiment on a fish sandwich. Fried cod is another option, as well as, lemon chicken, or even grilled asparagus. Basically, it will pair nicely with any meat or vegetable that needs a good kick of acid and fat.
My last tip should be obvious. Store the sauce in your fridge and avoid allowing it come to room temperature. It uses a mayonnaise base and we know what happens when you consume room temperature mayo.
