Wild salmon tends to be leaner than farmed, making it trickier to cook; brushing the fillets with oil helps to keep them moist. Look for fresh starting in mid-May, or find it year-round in your freezer case. If using farmed salmon, look for fish caught in U.S. waters. We love the richness of full-fat sour cream here, but you can also used reduced-fat if that’s what you have on hand.
