Roasted Salmon with Herbed YogurtPosted: April 29, 2009
H had some coworkers in town this week, so I knew I wanted to cook something nice, as they grow tired of restaurant, hotel food with all their travels. I had recently gotten my Everyday Food monthly magazine, and this recipe jumped out at me instantly. So, with guys coming to dinner, I knew this had to be it.
1/2 cup Greek yogurt (2%)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh dill, plus sprigs for serving
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 side of salmon (3 pounds) or 8 fillets (6 ounces each)
Lemon wedges, for serving
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine yogurt, mustard, dill, and parsley; season with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side down, on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread yogurt mixture on salmon.
Roast until opaque throughout, 15 to 20 minutes (8 minutes for fillets). Sprinkle with dill sprigs and serve warm or at room temperature with lemon wedges.
