For a restaurant-worthy meal enjoyed in the comfort of your own home, look no further than this delicious salmon filet with mustard dill cream sauce. We sous vide wild, sockeye salmon filets to perfect doneness (if using farmed salmon, increase the temperature to 125° or 130°F) and finish them with a rich pan sauce composed of shallots, white wine, mustard, cream, and dill. We love the bright herbaceousness of dill, but you can substitute parsley or tarragon if you prefer.
