need help with sauce recipes?!

Question: Need help with sauce recipes?
so i am doing a school project for cooking class where i have to cook poached salmon with asparagus and a sauce of my own choice that wuld go good with the meal so i was wondering if u have any ideas of easy and good sauce recipes that would go well with poached salmon


I know Hollandaise goes very well with asparagus and the lemony taste would go very well with the salmon as well since it has a bit of lemon in it. You can find many recipes online, and it is deceptively simple to make as long as you can follow instructions.

1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon dill weed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups milk (I only use ? cup)

In a saucepan over medium heat, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in
flour, dill, salt and pepper until blended; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil;
cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.

Cucumber sauce
3/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon finely minced green onion, tops only
1/2 cup grated cucumber
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
dash ground cayenne pepper
Combine all ingredients; chill.

Tarragon bearnaise. Compliments both the asparagus and the salmon and you should get some credit for the difficulty of the sauce itself.

X-Pro chef

If you want something non-European and less fatty,try sesame terriyaki.Beurre blanc or champagne sauce would go well with both,and not mask the natural flavor.

I agree with the two previous posters, that a Bearnaise or hollandaise derivative would work perfectly. Classic accompaniment.


Hollandaise sounds good. Could go for something different and try a peppercorn sauce, up to you budding chef! Be creative!
