Salmon Dill Shallot Cream Sauce

salmon dill

Anybody loves salmon? At least one time per week I made fish menu, salmon is my husband’s favorite. Sometimes I bought fresh salmon fish at the market, but you have to directly cook it after you buy, to maintain the freshness of the fish. I have stocks of frozen fish in refrigerator. I thaw first and soaked it with fresh lemon juice, and then season the fish with salt and pepper, after that dust it or coat it with some flour and fry it with olive oil.  Serve it with dill shallot cream sauce and mashed potato.
