Servings: 4 servings
- 1 pound salmon filet cut into four filets
- 1/4 cup chopped shallots
- 2 tbsp butter divided
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
- 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp capers
- 1 tbsp chopped dill
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
Melt some butter or add half the oil to the pan. Sautee the salmon for 2-3 minutes per side, or until it reaches 145-F. Set the salmon to the side.
Add the remaining butter or oil to the pan. Sautee the chopped shallots over medium-high heat for a few minutes until soft and translucent.
Add the chicken broth and simmer, reducing the chicken broth by about half.
Add the cream, Dijon mustard, capers, and dill to the skillet. Simmer gently for a few minutes, letting it thicken (by evaporation) a bit. Add the lemon juice and zest at the last minute.
Season with salt and pepper and serve over the salmon. Enjoy!
