HOW TO MAKE THE CREAMY LEMON GARLIC SAUCE?

Start by preparing your roux by letting the flour cook for 2 minutes in some butter then mixing in the cream to make it thick using a whisk.

The lemon zest and juice give it that quick tanginess that is crucial when making a fish dish, as well as chopped dill when it comes to herbs.

The whisking makes sure your cream is smooth without any clumps. It gets thicker the more you cook it, so allow it to reduce over the heat to achieve the desired thickness.

RECIPE TIPS:

    1. Be gentle with the salmon fillets while flipping them. It can easily fall apart if not handled well.

    2. Your frying pan should be very hot before adding the fillers, otherwise they won’t brown, it will cook them without gaining color.

    3. The garlic should never burn. It ends up turning bitter and messing up the entire sauce.

    4. In case you’re watching your calories or would like the sauce to be thinner, reduce the amount of cream and pair it with some milk when making the sauce. Half a cup of milk for ¾ cup of heavy cream. If your sauce isn’t at the desired thickness, mix in a little more flour.
