Leah & I both used salmon for this recipe but you can use any fish you like. I liked the salmon as it pairs nicely with the strong flavor of the sauce.

  • 8 ounces creme fraiche
  • 4 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 Tablespoons minced shallots or onions
  • 2 teaspoons capers

  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place fish filets (skin side down) on paper. Sprinkle each filet with salt & pepper.
  3. Combine creme fraiche, Dijon, shallots (or onions) and capers in a bowl. Mix. Divide mixture evenly between filets and spread over the top of each filet.
  4. Bake filets for 10-15 minutes in the preheated oven.
