Lemon dill sauce makes a delicious sauce for fish, chicken, and vegetables. Made of lemon, dill, garlic, and cream, this recipe is simple to make and stores easily.
There’s just something about a piece of simply baked fish or chicken, or even a platter of asparagus, that when you serve it with this lemon dill sauce, it takes it to a whole new level. It is one of those recipes that I love having in my arsenal. I know that it will dress up even the most otherwise ordinary of meals.
Since it comes together so quickly and uses ingredients that I normally try and keep on hand, it is definitely a go-to when we have unexpected company for supper or I just want to elevate the everyday a bit.
Lemon dill sauce keeps fairly well in the refrigerator as well. You can easily make your lemon dill sauce up to three days ahead and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It is beautiful served alongside a cold or hot plate of fish, chicken or vegetables.
