Simple Salmon with Dill Sauce
1 salmon fillet (about 2 pounds)
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
Coarse black pepper
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber
1 teaspoon fresh dill
Preheat oven to 450°F. Rinse salmon fillet and place skin-side down on a flat baking
pan. Pour soy sauce over salmon and sprinkle with pepper. Roast salmon using the 10-minute
rule--approximately 10 minutes per inch of thickness at the thickest point. If you
want to brown the top, brush lightly with olive oil and sear the salmon before roasting,
or run briefly under broiler. Cook until the salmon is opaque and flakes easily with
a fork (internal temperature of 145°F).
Serve salmon hot or cold with dill sauce made by combining 1/2 cup low-fat sour cream,
1/2 cup finely chopped cucumber that has been lightly salted and drained, and 1 teaspoon
chopped fresh dill (or more to taste).
