- 2 pounds salmon filets
- 3/4 cup sour cream
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed
- 1/4 teaspoon dill weed, dried
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup white wine
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Wash salmon fillets and pat dry. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
Arrange salmon fillets, skin side down, in a single layer on the prepared baking pan.
In a medium bowl, with a wire whisk, blend sour cream, mayonnaise, flour, lemon juice, dill, cream cheese, garlic, and wine until smooth: spread over the salmon. Sprinkle lightly with salt, pepper, and paprika.
Bake, uncovered, approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until a meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. (salmon will be slightly opaque in thickest part). During this time the meat continues to cook (meat temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees after it is removed from the oven) and the juices redistribute.
Approximately cooking times for salmon:
1/4 to 1/3-inch - 3 to 4 minutes
1/2 to 3/4-inch - 4 to 6 minutes
1 to 1 1/2-inch - 8 to 12 minutes
Remove from oven and transfer onto a serving platter.
