1 tbsp faiche of sour cream
Salt and freshly ground pepper
3 cups water

1 carrot, chopped
1 gralic clove, chopped finely
1 tsp black pepper-corns
4 or 5 sprigs fresh thyme

Season to taste with salt and pepper and refrigerate, covered.
Combine the court bouillon ingredients in a large, deep skillet. Bring to a simmer over medium heat; reduce to a bare simmer and cook 30 minutes. Remove it from the heat to cool slightly (to about 180).
Place salmon fillets, skin side down, in skillet; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover skillet tightly and adjust heat to maintain liquid at about 180 (surface will shimmer, not simmer). cook until fish is just opaque in center, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 5 minutes.
Transfer salmon to platter using a slotted spatula. (Cooking liquid can be reused; refrigerate up to 5 days or freeze up to 2 months.)
Cover salmon with plastic wrap and shipp until cold, at least 4 hours. Serve with dill sauce, garnishing with lemon slices and dill sprigs.
