Salmon is complemented by a variety of sauces, including citrus-flavored herb butters, creamy dill sauce, and the tangy, sweet tastes of soy-honey and wasabi sauce. Local supermarkets typically carry a diverse selection of bottled sauces that taste good with salmon, or home chefs can prepare their own.
Betty Crocker recommends a fresh lemon-herb butter sauce made with white wine, dill, chives, freshly-squeezed lemon juice and chopped shallots.
Taste of Home has a rich, home-style salmon sauce that combines mayonnaise and sour cream with fresh dill weed, chopped onion, lemon juice and horseradish.
More adventurous cooks can try Asian-inspired salmon sauces from Epicurious. Soy sauce, honey and lime juice are boiled in a saucepan until a thick sauce forms, while a mixture of water and wasabi powder create a spicy sauce to balance the sweet and tangy soy-honey mixture.
