Roasted Salmon with Herbed Yogurt

In May Everyday Food, Martha touts the recipe for Roasted Salmon with Herbed Yogurt as a special occasion dish. I made it for a weeknight dinner – no occasion in sight other than the fact that I had some salmon hanging around.

My first hurdle was tracking down the Greek yogurt the recipe calls for. The last time I needed Greek yogurt for a Martha recipe I ended up at a small family-owned grocery store where I paid an arm and a leg for it. This time, I cleverly checked the organic section in my big supermarket and there it was for much less.

yog-salmon1This is a very simple recipe. You mix the yogurt with dill and parsley and mustard and smear it on the salmon, then roast it at a high temp. It turned out perfectly. I would never have thought to put yogurt on salmon, but it had a wonderful flavor. This is much simpler than making a sauce. The yogurt topping turns slightly brown and gets a tad hard, so it is almost like a crust. It stays in place, unlike a sauce and I think it kept the salmon quite moist as it roasted. This is a good thing!yog-salmon21

    That sounds fabulous! I’m glad you tried it. Now I’ll have to give it a go. Unfortunately my husband does not like salmon so I’ll have to grill a steak for him that night 🙂

    You can easily make just a small piece and since it was such a low maintenance dish, throwing a steak on grill too shouldn’t be too much more work. Let me know if you like it!

    I tried it and really liked it too. I’m a Greek yogurt addict so luckily I had it on hand.
