Salmon with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

This is my Greek style salmon. I got the idea for this recipe after eating a gyro last August at the Santa Barbara Greek festival. I like the clean taste of the sauce with the rich salmon. This is a very quick and easy recipe.

Whisk yogurt, honey, mustard, dill, and vinegar together. Set aside.
Brush salmon fillets with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Cook until desired doneness, about 7-10 minutes, depending on thickness of fish.
Spoon yogurt sauce over salmon and garnish with chopped cucumber.

  1. Today I felt like eating salmon, and so I remembered this recipe that I've made once before. I like that it was easy to find this one....went to the right side of your blog, and clicked on Seafood.....I went thru some stuff before I found this, and reflected on how much better your photography is now compared to when I started to read your blog. I think I even recommended you to attend a food photography workshop at Brooks when I first started reading your blog. They have 3 days courses ever so often where people can learn almost everything Brookies learn in 7 weeks and pay $$$$$$$$$ for, but the weekend workshop is much cheaper. Anyway now your photos are looking so professional. No need of a workshop. Some people just got the talent whereas others need a photo-class....some graduate from Brooks and can only take a technically right picture, but with no artistic feel or colors that go together. Some get a good camera and read the manuel and learn from mistakes. Anyway the salmon was delicious. I didn't get the pita-bread with it since I'm gluten-free and I also try not to mix starch with protein.
