What’s Cookin’ – Eva’s Dill Sauce

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.Salmon

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

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.

 

HouseboatAbout 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.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog. This dill sauce sounds deeeelicious. Yum. Love your bubble gum in the cap picture, too. Looks like something I’d find around my house. 🙂

    • You should definitely try the dill sauce! The thing about the gum in the beer bottle cap photo is … was he chewing the gum while he was drinking the beer? Oh, gag! Ya gotta laugh!!!

  2. I love seafood and salmon is one of my top 3 faves. I’ve never tried preparing it myself, though, because I’ve been too scared I’d ruin it by overcooking or something like that. It sounds like this dill sauce could save the salmon even if I screwed up!

    • This dill sauce is incredible. I’ll have to write out the directions for poaching salmon. It’s really easy and you can have dinner on the table in about 15 minutes. Will do it soon …
