If you have an excess or surplus of dill, try making this simple sauce! You only need a few ingredients – butter, garlic, chicken broth, cream, and fresh dill – and even the garlic is optional!
The sauce pairs perfectly with fish such as salmon or cod, roasted or grilled chicken, or over low carb vegetables like asparagus, cabbage, and zucchini.
How to Make a Creamy Dill Sauce
Melt some butter in a skillet over a medium heat. Add some minced garlic and cook for a minute, stirring frequently. Garlic paste would also work well – just don't add too much as it will overpower the dill.
Add some chicken broth (or vegetable stock, if you prefer to keep it vegetarian) and heavy cream. Increase the temperature until the sauce is bubbling. Continue to cook for about five minutes until the sauce has reduced and thickened.
Season with salt and pepper, and stir in the fresh dill.
To use the sauce later, similar transfer it to a bowl and leave to cool.
When ready to use, simply pour it into a small saucepan over a medium heat, and cook until warmed through, stirring occasionally. Shown below with roasted salmon and baby spinach – a wonderful combination!
