Simple, creamy sauce made with fresh dill, sour cream, lemon and garlic that is prefect spooned over fish or chicken.
I have become obsessed with dill sauce as of late. I made some a while back with some salmon for dinner and then just kept making more and more.
I have been eating it with everything… chicken, fish, dipping veggies into. All the things.
So I figured it would be a good time to share my recipe for creamy dill sauce. I really wanted a deep dill flavor with this sauce and the best way to achieve that is with fresh dill. The fresher the better.
For this sauce you’ll need just a few simple ingredients – sour cream, Dijon mustard, milk, lemon juice, dill, garlic, and salt and pepper.
Finely chop the dill to release the oils and add all the ingredients into a bowl. Whisk thoroughly to combine and until creamy and light.
I recommend letting the sauce rest for a couple hours in the fridge to elevate the dill flavor but you don’t have to. It’s just as good immediately as it is after a few hours.
That’s it! Just whisk and serve.
I’ve been making this batch and keeping it in an air-tight container in the fridge and it’s good for about a week. Just grab some to dip sweet peppers, carrots, or other veggies.
Or grab it out and spoon it over your favorite fish or chicken dish. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
