Salmon tastes great pan fried, and combined with this delicious creamy sauce with mustard and dill, it turns into a gourmet meal - and it's ready in 20 minutes to boot! You can use fresh or frozen salmon.

Instructions Checklist

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Melt butter and oil together in the hot skillet. Add salmon; pan-fry for 3 minutes. Flip and cook until salmon is almost cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Sprinkle remaining lemon juice onto one side of the pan. Add mustard and dill and mix. Pour in cream, mix with a spoon, and tilt pan so sauce runs around the salmon fillets. Cook for a few minutes until sauce thickens. Season with salt. Serve salmon with sauce.

Cook's Note:

If you're using frozen salmon, make sure to fully thaw it before cooking.

Quick, easy and delicious! If you like a lot of sauce, it would be best to double it. I prefer wild-caught salmon which I used here. I used half & half in place of the heavy cream. Served with Garlic Dill New Potatoes from this site and buttered broccoli. Thanks Lena, great way to prepare salmon, which I'll surely make again! UPDATE 7/23/20: This is so delicious! This time used 2% milk and it worked great. Had with Cream Corn Like No Other from this site, another great recipe! Read More
