  • 4 salmon fillets (about 8oz. each)
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • salt and pepper
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice


  1. Put oil in a large, heavy skillet. Salt and pepper salmon fillets generously. Place in hot oil and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until done. For the sauce: Melt 4 Tblsp. butter in a heavy skillet. Stir in 3 Tblsp. flour until you have a smooth, pasty slurry. Whisk in a cup of cream and then a cup of milk (or half-and-half). Cook over medium heat, stirring with a whisk, until the starches gelatinize and the sauce thickens. Add salt and pepper and dilute with additional milk to reach the desired consistency. Add a couple Tblsp. of lemon juice, just enough to lend a little tang, and snipped, fresh dill. Spoon hot sauce over each serving of fish. Garnish with lemon wedges.
