Recipe: Oven Baked Salmon with Creamy Herb Sauce

For the salmon:

  • 2 pounds salmon fillets, skin removed
  • 1/2 cup Breakstone’s sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon cracked black pepper

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 Tablespoons corn starch
  • 1 cup Breakstone’s Sour Cream
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian Seasoning
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Lightly spray a baking dish.
  2. Arrange salmon fillets in prepared baking dish. Evenly coat with sour cream. Sprinkle black pepper evenly over salmon fillets.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until salmon is easily flaked with a fork.
  4. Meanwhile, in a separate saucepan, blend chicken broth and cornstarch. Bring to a boil, and with a whisk, stir continuously. Reduce heat and add sour cream, salt and Italian Seasoning. Continue to whisk until a smooth sauce has formed.
  5. Plate cooked salmon and drizzle with creamy herb sauce. Top with one small squeeze of lemon juice, if desired.
