  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a medium baking dish.
  2. Arrange salmon in the prepared baking dish. Evenly coat with sour cream. Season with white pepper and dill.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until fish is easily flaked with a fork.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix the wine and shallot, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes, until liquid is reduced by about 2 tablespoons.
  5. In a small bowl, thoroughly blend the half-and-half and flour, and stir into the wine mixture. Return the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat, and continue to cook and stir until thickened.
  6. Remove the wine and cream mixture from heat, and mix in the Dijon mustard. Pour evenly over the salmon to serve.

I did like this recipe, the salmon was flaky and not dry, the sauce went beautifully over the fish. I did a little different with the sauce, I sweated the shallots in 1 tbsp. butter, then wine. ...

There is so much missing in this sauce - it is very plain.

Good but a little bland. Cream sauce got way too thick while cooking, perhaps I overheated it. Husband loved the recipe and kids ate it so I will make again.

Fantastic!!! I made this recipe when we had company coming over. Everyone raved and even the kids loved it. I did omit the flour in the sauce and added 1 Tbsp. dill to the sauce. I served th...

I'm glad I didn't pour this dreadful sauce over the expensive salmon before tasting it. I didn't make any changes so therefore was faced with this extremely thick tastleless sauce. I had to ad...

4.5 Stars! I made this dish last minute; I had the ingredients on hand. It was easy and really didn't take too long. I followed the recipe as printed and everyone liked it - with just a littl...
