Salmon Steaks with Lemon-Dill Dressing

For a light summer supper, try this make-ahead recipe. The evening before, poach and refrigerate the salmon. Mix and refrigerate the creamy herbed dressing. Both the fish and dressing are at their flavorful best refreshingly chilled.

  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 10 whole black peppercorns
  • 3 sprigs parsley
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 6 fresh or frozen salmon steaks, cut 1 to 1-1/4 inches thick (about 2 pounds)
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill or 2 teaspoons dried dillweed
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Fresh dill (optional)
  • Lemon wedges (optional)
  • In a 12-inch skillet combine water, lemon juice, onion, peppercorns, parsley, bay leaves, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to boiling; add salmon steaks. Cover; simmer 8 to 12 minutes (12 to 18 minutes for frozen) or until fish just flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  • Remove salmon from skillet; discard poaching liquid. Cover; refrigerate salmon 2 to 4 hours or until chilled.
  • For dressing, in a small mixing bowl combine mayonnaise or salad dressing, buttermilk, dill, chives, lemon peel, and lemon juice. Cover and chill 1 to 4 hours. Serve salmon steaks topped with dressing. If desired, garnish salmon with dill and lemon wedges. Makes 6 servings.
