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 could also use this sauce as a salad dressing with a baby leaf salad or avocado and bacon salad, or even as a topping with some ham on toast, if you are using some delicious home-baked and glazed ham.
When you are not quite sure what to use to improve the taste of something – maybe this is exactly what you are looking for!
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 worked fine, but I am sure fresh dill would be a bit better.
It also will keep well in the fridge for a few days at least.
And at least now you will never have to visit Ikea again (unless you need some new furniture or other household items)! Try his link for my Ikea style Swedish meatball recipe.
