468x60 What's for Dinner

Broiled Salmon

3 Tbsp reduced fat sour cream
1 Tbsp dijon mustard
1 Tbsp fresh dill (chopped)
3 cloves fresh garlic (chopped)
Juice from 1/2 medium lemon
1/8-1/4 tspn red pepper
Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
(2-4) 7oz. Atlantic salmon steaks

  • Preheat broiler.
  • Place first 6 ingredients in a small bowl. Mix well.
  • Wash salmon steaks and pat dry with paper towel.
  • Place salmon on lightly greased (I use Pam) broiler pan covered in foil. Sprinkle with salt (if desired).
  • Brush top and sides of salmon steaks with the mixture.
  • Place salmon under the broiler, about 3 inches or so from heat source.
  • Broil until top is done almost to your liking. I like mine pretty dark (about 4-7 minutes).
  • Close oven door, turn off broiler, reduce heat to 425 and complete cooking, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Garnish with fresh dill and lemon and serve!
  • Yield: 2-4 servings
