Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce

Salmon with Creamy Dill Sauce

 Made  times

"There's nothing like fresh salmon, and my mom bakes it just right so it nearly melts in your mouth. The sour cream sauce is subtly seasoned with dill and horseradish so that it doesn't overpower the delicate salmon flavor. -Susan Emery Everett, Washington"
