recipe: salmon with citrus yogurt sauce

 the salmon, waaaaaay before it was finished
Greek yogurt is delicious.  Fresh, wild salmon is delicious.  Throw the two together with some citrus and garlic and you've got summer dinner heaven.  I started with this recipe from and made a few minor tweaks.  Served over lemon mint tabbouleh, it was a fast and tasty warm weather dinner.

Salmon with Citrus Yogurt Sauce
Mix the following ingredients:
  • 1 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt or plain whole-milk yogurt (see cooks' note, below)
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil2 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated fresh orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon mild honey (to taste)
  • 1 clove pressed garlic
Cook your salmon however you like- grilled, broiled, pan seared, etc...  Then, dress with citrus yogurt sauce.  Easy peasy!
