From My Kitchen: Salmon with Lemon Dill Yogurt

This is another very fast dish! I love salmon, there’s so many ways you can make this fish delicious, and this is certainly one of them. What brings it home for me, is the super delicious Lemon Dill Yogurt, I couldn’t get enough of it. Start to finish, this dish takes less than 30 minutes to make (of course depending on what you make on the side), so it’s a perfect weekday dish. It’s low calorie and healthy…

What you’ll need:

  • 8 oz wild salmon, sliced in half
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 medium shallot, sliced thinly
  • 4 fresh dill sprigs
  • 6 oz low or non fat greek yogurt
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil (or flaxseed oil, or grapeseed oil)
  • 2 tsp mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp fresh chopped dill
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a medium mixing bowl, add yogurt, oil, mayonnaise, lemon juice and chopped dill. Mix well, add salt to your taste.

Season the salmon with salt and pepper. Add the broth, wine, shallot and dill to a large skillet and bring to a simmer.

Add the salmon to the skillet with the skin side down. Cover the skillet. Cook the salmon over medium heat for 5 minutes.

Transfer the salmon to the place and surround it with the lemon dill yogurt and the shallots and dill sprigs. Serve with side of your choice (I chose a Cajun Potato salad).

Bon Appétit!
