Since we’re making a cream sauce for salmon or any delicious fish recipes, we want it to be simple yet flavorful. That is why we’re here to give you a few preparation tips to consider when making this homemade dill sauce recipe.


  • Add in a squeeze of lemon juice for that extra tanginess. Aside from the mustard’s strong and sour taste, you can add in a squeeze of lemon to add more tang and citrusy flavor into the dip. 
  • Whisk until it emulsifies for a smooth and creamy consistency. It’s important to mix it well so that it’s not too runny or clumpy when you pour it into the salmon or use it as a dip.
  • Let it chill in the refrigerator for a while. This will allow the flavors to settle and blend before serving.
