Fish with dill sauce recipe

6 May
I used salmon as the fillets.  This is delicious with a green salad.
  • 4 fish fillets, about 6 oz. each
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 lemon: 1/2 zested and juiced, the other half cut into wedges
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill, or 2 teaspoons dried
  • salt and pepper
  • Salt and pepper the fillets. Heat butter in a skillet large enough to hold fish in a single layer. When pan is hot, add fillets and cook about 5 minutes, turn and cook until done. Allow about 10 minutes total cooking time for each inch of thickness.
  • Remove fillets to a warm platter or individual serving plates.( See TIP ) Add wine, zest and lemon juice to skillet, raise heat to high and bring to a boil. Add cream and dill and boil until sauce begins to thicken, 1 – 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and spoon sauce over fish. Serve immediately, with lemon wedges on the side.

    Cream and butter – hard to go wrong with such a winning combo! Might have to book-mark this wee number, LG 🙂
