How to Make It

Set broiler on high. Place the salmon on a foil-lined broiler pan and season with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Broil until the salmon is the same color throughout and flakes easily, 7 to 10 minutes, depending on thickness.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, heat the oil and 1 tablespoon of the butter until it melts. Add the shallot and cook until softened, about 1 minute. Add the wine and cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low and whisk in the mustard, dill, pepper, and the remaining salt. Remove from heat.

Cut the remaining butter into pieces, add to the sauce, and whisk until incorporated. Place the salmon on individual plates, spoon the sauce over the top, and sprinkle with additional dill. Serve with the cucumber (if desired).

Delicious and simple to make. I think that I may add some extra dijon mustard to the sauce the next time I make this.

Simple and delicious! I added a bit of fat free sour cream to the sauce right before serving to thicken. We doubled the sauce recipe and baked the other half with tilapia fillets the next night. Serve with a squeeze of lemon!

This was super easy to make ...served on top of grilled salmon it was perfect because the salmon was lightly seasoned. The bf liked it a lot so I'll definitely make this again.

I keep dill in the house just for this recipe. It's always a crowd pleaser, even when I substitute plain yogurt for the butter. I've also used finely minced onion when I'm out of shallots. Highly recommended.
