Moist Salmon with Dill Sauce Recipe

This lovely moist salmon topped with a mild and creamy dill sauce can be ready in minutes. And because it’s cooked in packets on the grill, cleanup is fast too, says Mary Relyea of Canastota, New York.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 salmon fillets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon plus 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice


  • 1. Place each salmon fillet on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon dill and pepper. Fold foil around salmon and seal tightly.
  • 2. Grill, covered, over high heat for 5-10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
  • 3. In a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, broth, milk, mustard, lemon juice and remaining dill. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened.
  • 4. Open foil packets carefully to allow steam to escape. Serve salmon with dill sauce. Yield: 6 servings.

"This was absolutely delicious. The only problem I had was that I didn't use reduced sodium broth and the sauce turned out a little salty for my taste. I recommend that you definitely use the reduced-sodium broth when you're making the sauce for this dish. Other than that its fabulous"
