Mustard-Broiled Salmon With New Potato Salad August 20, 2015

I was intimidated by the thought on raw fennel because I am not big on the licorice taste it has but it actually worked really well in this recipe. I only made a small batch since the hubs is back off his salmon kick but it was simple and tasty.


  • 1 1/2 pounds new potatoes
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 3/4 cup crème fraîche or sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 small fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 4 6-ounce salmon fillets, skin removed
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill, chopped



Adjust oven rack to 6 inches below heat source. Heat broiler.

Place the potatoes in a pot, cover with cold water, and bring to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon salt, reduce heat, and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain, run under cold water, then cut into quarters.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the crème fraîche, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Stir in the potatoes and fennel.

Place the salmon on a parchment- or foil-lined baking sheet. In a bowl, combine the mustard and remaining lemon juice. Spread over the top of the salmon.

Broil the salmon until it is the same color throughout, 6 to 8 minutes, depending on the thickness.

Divide the salmon and salad among individual plates and sprinkle with the dill.
