Eva’s Dill Sauce is what I never knew I always wanted! I have, in the past few years, fallen in love with salmon, especially poached salmon, usually with a little lemon juice squeezed over it. Oh, yum! But I have recently been introduced to something that is so indescribably good – Dill Sauce – specifically, Eva’s Dill Sauce.
A woman who is – no kidding – one of the best cooks I’ve ever met, treated us to Dill Sauce over chilled, steamed salmon the last time we were invited over for dinner. Hubby and I both looked like slobbering idiots, drooling, rolling our eyes, groaning with pleasure over this Dill Sauce. Since then, I have made it and it is so easy and so amazingly delicious. In fact, I had some left over from making salmon and used it the following night as marinade on sauteed chicken breasts. It was great!
Eva’s Dill Sauce
Juice of 1 lemon (approx. 1/3 cup)
1/4 cup olive oil
4 T. fresh chopped dill
2 T. dijon mustard
2 large garlic cloves, pressed
Whisk together the lemon, oil, dill, mustard and garlic, along with a little salt and pepper.
About 10 years ago, on a Lake Powell houseboat vacation with four other couples, hubby and I were fortunate enough to spend five days sharing a houseboat with Eva and her hubby. We definitely had the best houseboat because Eva is an amazing cook and baker and, oh, the hungarian pastries we consumed!
Whoa, I believe I just gained weight thinking about all the yummy food. Anyway, Eva has a wonderful recipe website that you are sure to enjoy, Eva’s Recipes. The Dill Sauce is included in her recipe for Dilly Salmon.
