(Swedish mustard-dill sauce)

A classic accompaniment to gravlax, hovmästarsås, a dill-scented mustard sauce, is an excellent condiment for all kinds of fish and seafood. Hovmästarsås (pronouced "hohv-mestar-sohs") comes together in a snap. Another name for this creamy spread is gravlaxsås.

Makes about 3/4 cup

Ingredients

  • Dijon mustard -- 1/4 cup
  • White or red wine vinegar -- 1 tablespoon
  • Sugar -- 1 tablespoon
  • Salt and pepper -- a pinch of each
  • Vegetable oil -- 1/2 cup
  • Fresh dill, chopped -- 2 to 3 tablespoons

Method

  1. Mix the mustard, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper together well in a medium-sized bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil.
  2. Stir in the chopped dill, adjust seasoning to taste and serve chilled.

Hovmästarsås Variations

  • Try using other types of mustard, but avoid bright yellow mustards. Swedish-style mustard is mild and sweet. Adjust the amount of vinegar and sugar as needed.
