It's very hard to make a bad salmon dish only because salmon is a great fish with wonderful taste. Salmon is a hearty oily fish that can amplify a lot of nice flavours. Still you want to make the best out of it, don't you?
As a true Greek yogurt fan, I try lots of recipes that use Greek yogurt. This salmon recipe is one of many that survived my test kitchen. :)
I've made this salmon dish several times, and included it in my repertoire.
It's just deliciously easy. I try to eat salmon as often as possible as the fish is known for its high protein, high omega-3 fatty acids, and high vitamin D content. I tend to eat even more often since I heard the fish is good to reduce dark under-eye circles! :)
If you are worried about dark circles under eyes, salmon is the fish you want to eat :)
Here goes the recipe.
(adapted from Marta Stewart)
1/4 cup Greek yogurt (preferrably 2%)
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh dill, plus sprigs for serving
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh parsley
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 fillets (160g each)
Lemon wedges, for serving
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Combine yogurt, mustard, dill, and parsley and season with salt and pepper.
3. Place salmon, skin side down, on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread yogurt mixture on salmon.
4. Roast until opaque throughout, 10-12 minutes.
5. Sprinkle with dill sprigs and serve warm or at room temperature with lemon wedges.
It's simple, isn't it? It is scrumptious! Warm vegetables are great companions for this healthy fish.
Hope you like it as much as I do.
