Swedish Sour Cream and Caviar Sauce for Salmon

Swedish Sour Cream and Caviar Sauce for Salmon


"The absolute best sauce to serve with grilled salmon, steamed artichokes, and boiled new potatoes in the summertime. Lumpfish caviar can be found in gourmet food stores or cheaper at IKEA. Wonderful with salmon, it's also great with other more mild fish dishes."

I served this with salmon puffs as well as melba toasts. I love the saltiness. It's similar to Taramosalata.

I live here in Sweden and can buy the commercial variety of this.. but this recipie is fantastic,, even better than the store-bought one!

Stunning. Very difficult to fault this receipe. Add fresh chopped Chives and a dash of Paprika powder for color. Note this receipe makes a lot of sauce!

Very good. I made some minor changes, I added chopped chives as well as dill. And I left out the creme fresh, since I didn't have time to go to the store. It was a hit at my Sweish themed party ...

Great salmon/caviar recipe! Very colorful and bright. I almost took one star away for being a little too salty, but decided against it.
