Salmon with Sour Cream Mustard Topping

We love salmon.  It’s one of our few little luxuries.  We really enjoyed this recipe from "Down Home Cooking” – it was simple – 15 minutes from refrigerator to plate.  I broiled this in my Breville toaster oven – it preheats in minutes.  The sauce was a simple stir-together, but it accented the salmon and went well with the sautéed cabbage and onions with caraway seeds I served with it.  I actually used a little plain (not toasted) onion sour cream dip instead of plain sour cream because I had some left from another recipe – delicious.

  2        teaspoons  lemon juice

  1. I haven't always been a fan of fish of any kind until my husband encouraged me to try salmon. When it's properly prepared it's actually pretty tasty--sadly, too many people overcook it.

    The mustard sauce sounds perfect--Steve and I enjoy mustard both as a condiment and as a seasoning in recipes, so I would be happy to try this recipe!
