cold sauce for roasted salmon?

Here I am again, the salmon newbie. Now I think I know how to roast/bake the salmon (thanks to Gio's post yesterday). I'll garnish the platter with sprigs of dill, slices of cucumber and thin wedges of lemon and will serve it only slightly warm or at room temperature.

I'd like to make some kind of sauce to serve alongside - something that's based on sour cream or creme fraiche?

Thanks in advance for your ideas/advice/recipes.

    My Blog:

    1. Some of my favorites include Wasabi mayonaise and Lemon Aoli

      1. What about something like pesto creme fraiche sauce? Just mix the two, heavy on the creme fraiche, then thin w/ cream.

        1. simple and classic is sour cream or creme fraiche mixed with peeled seeded chopped cucumber and dill, season with lemon juice and salt and pepper. Can't go wrong with sauce tartar when its made from scratch or a good remoulade with capers.
          I am also with with alaskachick in that we do a lot of wasabi mayo and salmon stands up to an aoili and is well complimented.

          i aslo serve it with a spicy pepper jelly - a little goes a long way., really with salmon its hard to go wrong if its fresh and not overcooked

          1. I usually mix up mayo and ketchup then add to taste celery salt, paprika and fresh parsely
