- fat free sour cream - 1/2 c
- light mayonnaise - 2 tbs
- fresh dill - 2 tbs, chopped
- capers - 1/2 tbs, finely chopped
- Dijon mustard - 1 tbs
- lemon juice - 1 tsp
- salt and pepper - to taste
- salmon fillet - 1-1/2 pounds
- white wine - 1/2 c
- water - 1/2 c
- onion - several thin slices
- fresh dill - several sprigs
- peppercorns - 1 tsp
- lemon - several thin slices
In a small bowl, stir together sauce ingredients and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, season salmon with salt and pepper. Combine water, wine, lemon, onion slices, fresh dill, and peppercorns in a large pan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Add salmon, return heat to a simmer, and reduce heat to low. Cover salmon and cook until just cooked through, about 10 minutes. Salmon should still be slightly undercooked inside as it will continue to cook once removed from the heat.
Discard the poaching water and serve salmon topped with sauce.
