Salmon with Lemon-Pepper Sauce
August 2, 2012 § 1 Comment
I was craving fish after some heavy meals and found this recipe online. I didn’t even do the watercress salad (I hate tarragon. Can I say that?) but the salmon was absolutely delectable. I’m talking probably the best salmon I’ve ever made.
I cut the recipe down for two only using my non-exact math way so what I used was something like this.For the marinade: 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel
2/3 tablespoon honey
1/3 tablespoon olive oil plus additional for brushing 1/3 tablespoon chopped shallot (and by shallot I mean scallion) For the Lemon-Pepper Sauce: 1/3 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon peel salt and pepper to taste
Honestly, the salmon was so perfect, I don’t even know if it needed the lemon-pepper sauce. But I did think it provided a nice balance to the warm, sweetness still lingering from the honey marinade with it’s cool, tart, creaminess.
