the Ingredients

20151023095356 Row Seafood 10


  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon minced scallion (white and light green parts only)
  • 1 tablespoon tarragon vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 anchovy fillets, minced
  • 4 salmon fillets (with skin), each 6 to 8 ounces and about 1 inch thick
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • 01 In a medium bowl whisk the sauce ingredients.
  • 02 Prepare the grill for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).
  • 03 Generously brush the salmon with oil and season evenly with salt and pepper. Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the salmon, flesh side down first, over direct high heat, with the lid closed, until you can lift the fillets off the grate with tongs without sticking, 6 to 8 minutes. Turn the salmon fillets over with the skin side down and continue cooking them to your desired doneness, 2 to 3 minutes more for medium rare. Slide a spatula between the skin and flesh, and transfer the fillets to serving plates. Spoon the sauce over the fillets. Serve immediately.
