My Not-Grandma's Creamy Baked Salmon w/ Mustard and Dill
4 Filets of Salmon (roughly 6oz. apiece)
1 Cup Sour Cream
1/3 Cup of fresh Dill (finely chopped)
3 tbsp. of a nice Hearty Mustard (a variety w/ dill and capers would be ideal)
1 tbsp. Honey
Half a Lemon (zested and juiced)
1 Shallot (minced)
Salt (to taste)
Fresh Cracked Black Pepper (to taste)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place filets on a wire rack and pat dry with paper towels.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Set half of the mixture aside to be served alongside the finished fish on the table, and liberally spoon the remaining half of the mixture atop your filets.
Place in your heated oven for roughly 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and, well, enjoy! That's all there is to it.
Serving Suggestion: Goes great alongside some potatoes gently roasted in duck-fat and tarragon.
