Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Pound salmon fillet, skin removed, cut into 6-ounce portions
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 Ounces plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 Teaspoons chopped dill, plus more for garnish
  • 1 Tablespoon capers, rinsed and chopped

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly oil a roasting pan, or line a cookie sheet with foil. Add the salmon to the prepared pan, and season with the tablespoon of lemon juice, and season with salt and pepper.

Roast the salmon in the oven for about 10 to 15 minutes, depending upon the thickness of the fish.

While the salmon is roasting, make the sauce: Whisk together the yogurt, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, dill, and capers.

Serve a spoonful of the Greek yogurt sauce over the salmon and garnish with dill.

Salmon Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Salmon Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Salmon Wine Pairing

Pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillon, albariño, or rosé with most cooked salmon dishes; pinot noir with salmon in red wine or other strong sauce; grüner veltliner, rosé, or vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with smoked salmon.
