Salmon with Creamy Dijon Sauce

This salmon is another go-to recipe for me when I don't have anything planned.  Its really easy & quick to make and it tastes amazing!  The recipe is from the very first cook book I bought when we were first married (a sam's club cook book that cost about $6).

4 salmon filets (or other fish - the original recipe is for halibut)
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon onion salt
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/2 cup sour cream (I used fat free)
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/2 cup chicken or veggie stock or broth

First you want to thaw fish if frozen.  Baste it with butter, onion salt, marjoram, and 1/4 teaspoon thyme.  Broil in oven for 8-12 minutes until flakes easily with a fork.  Heat sour cream, flour, mustard, salt, pepper, thyme, and chicken stock in small sauce pan over medium heat until thickened and bubbly, heat for one more minute.  Serve sauce over fish.


  1. Ooo that looks yummy! I'm going to have to put this on my list to try! Do you usually fresh or frozen fish? I've always used fresh fish but it's so expensive we don't use it too often. The frozen fish is so much cheaper I'm thinking of switching.

  2. Its sooo good and easy!!! I always use frozen actually! We buy it in bulk at sam's club and usually have around 4 different types in the freezer at all times! So easy to just defrost them real quick and throw them in the oven or on the grill!

  3. Thanks, Jourdan! I know what I'm getting at the store this week! :)
