Salmon with Herb Sauce is a flavorful and healthy recipe that is believed to have originated in France. It features a fresh salmon fillet that is topped with a creamy herb sauce made from a combination of herbs such as parsley, chives, and dill, along with sour cream, lemon juice, and garlic. To make this recipe, you start by preparing the herb sauce by blending together all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Then, you sear the salmon fillet in a pan until it is cooked through and crispy on the outside. Finally, you spoon the herb sauce over the salmon and serve it with your favorite side dishes such as roasted vegetables or a green salad. This dish is a tasty and elegant way to incorporate more omega-3-rich salmon into your diet and is perfect for a special occasion or a romantic dinner for two.

Although dishes containing raw eggs are not a risk for most people, they should be avoided by the elderly or infirm, infants, and pregnant women.
