Mustard Salmon With New Potato Salad Recipe 2010-07-08 15:15:19


  1. 1 1/2 pounds new potatoes
  2. kosher salt and black pepper
  3. 3/4 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
  4. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  5. 1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  6. 4 6-ounce salmon fillets, skin removed
  7. 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped
  8. 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  1. Adjust oven rack to 6 inches below heat source; heat broiler.
  2. Place the potatoes in a medium pot, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, run under cold water to cool, then cut into quarters.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the crème fraîche or sour cream, 1 tablespoon of the lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in the potatoes and fennel; set aside.
  4. Place the salmon on a parchment- or foil-lined baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the mustard and the remaining lemon juice. Spread over the top of the salmon.
  5. Broil until the salmon is the same color throughout, 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the thickness.
  6. Divide the salmon and salad among individual plates and sprinkle with the dill.

Serves 4.
