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!

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
