Dill Honey Mustard Sauce

Dill Honey Mustard Sauce

Mustard Dill Sauce for Salmon

One of our favourite treats used to be a trip to our local Ikea where we would have some delicious Swedish Meatballs for lunch and a soft ice cream on the way out. But we could not visit Ikea without picking up some Gravad Lax and a bottle of their Senap and dill sauce. Unfortunately, now we do not have an Ikea close by. So this recipe for dill honey mustard sauce is my (successful) attempt to replicate this delicious sauce.

What to serve with this mustard dill sauce

Smoked salmon is obviously the first thing that comes to mind. Try making some delicious smoked salmon flatbread appetizers or smoked salmon crackers with cream cheese and use this mustard and dill sauce to complement it. Gravad lax, which is salmon cured in sugar, salt and dill is also a good combination for this dill and mustard dressing.

You can also use this sauce as a salad dressing with a baby leaf saladavocado and bacon salad, or crispy chicken salad.

It is also great as a topping with some ham on toast, if you are using some delicious home-baked and glazed ham.

So when you are not quite sure what to use to improve the taste of something – maybe this is exactly what you are looking for! The Ikea dill sauce certainly has inspired some combinations.

Honey Mustard Sauce no Mayo

This sauce recipe does not include any mayo, and yet it is still creamy and delicious. It adds just the perfect combination of tastes to complement your salmon (the sweetness of the honey and the bite of the Dijon mustard together with the subtleness of the dill).

It really is so easy and quick to make and we have all the ingredients (except fresh dill) close to hand in our kitchen stores. I used dried dill for this which also works fine, (but I am sure some fresh dill would be a little bit better).

This mustard & dill sauce will also keep well in the fridge for a few days at least.

And at least now you will never have to visit Ikea again (unless of course, you need some new furniture or other household items)! Try his link for my Ikea style Swedish meatball recipe.

I hope you enjoy this simple recipe. Please let me know how you get on in the comments section below!

This sauce is a perfect accompaniment to smoked salmon, fish, shrimp or ham. A simple easy recipe that is easily as good as the smoked salmon sauce you can get from Ikea.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tsp runny honey
  • 1 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 4 tbsp virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried dill (by all means use fresh if you can get it)
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar
  • Zest of 1/2 lime
  • Juice 1/2 lime
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

  1. Mix the mustard, honey and olive oil in a bowl and whisk together.
  2. Then add the vinegar, dill, sugar, lime zest and lime juice and stir until well mixed.
  3. Use it to serve with smoked salmon canapes, ham, hors d'oeuvres, or as a salad dressing with chicken.

Notes

I used dried dill in this recipe as I could not get any fresh dill. But dried dill works just as well.
