Hi happy, healthy friends!

I wanted to remind everyone that this Friday will be the 3rd Best of the Blogs linkup! You can linkup either a Top Posts recap like I do OR one of your favorite or top viewed posts of the month.  The idea is that we will have the best this blog community has to offer for each month in one place.  If you are not a blogger, this will be a great resource for you to learn about new sites and view some incredible posts.  It will be held on the last weekday of each month.  The linkup has been pretty successful so far, but I need your help to keep it going!

Moving onto the main event today…

The hubs and I eat salmon about once a week.  It is super tasty, healthy and it makes my meat eating hubby happy.  There is a limit to the number of times a week I can cook him chickpeas for dinner. 🙂  He’s such a good sport, but I know my limits.

Since we do eat salmon so much, I am always in search of  new ways to enjoy it.  After some experimenting I came up with this amazing Greek yogurt dill sauce for salmon.

It really brings out the flavor of the fish and makes it seem even more indulgent!  But it is actually super healthy.  Don’t you love it when food kind of tricks you like that!

And the best part is a lot of the ingredients are ones I keep in my fridge on a weekly basis.

This Greek yogurt dill sauce for salmon could easily be used on another fish too!  It would also be great with shrimp.

I love the pairing of fresh buttery salmon with the creamy yogurt.  It is absolute perfection and the perfect weeknight meal OR it’s even nice enough for company!

    This sounds delicious. Love the little kick that the horseradish is going to offer…. Going to buy some salmon tomorrow!

    Did you get a new camera? I feel like your food images have changed, I like them<3 I love Dill and Dill Sauces, and I am lucky that my daughter does too. I usually use sour cream and mayonnaise (not healthy) and have never tried Greek yogurt before. Maybe I will do it the next time that I make our sauce again. Thanks for sharing.

      Oh cool!! I did not get a new camera. I’ve been playing around with the lower aperture setting on my 50 prime. I think I just keep learning new things with photography.
      I’m looking to upgrade some of my lenses soon. Any suggestions?

    Oh yummmmm. This is actually so much like a typical dinner for me since going pescetarian. I bake a simple piece of salmon and cover it with a quickie dill dijonaise a lot – just mix together mayo, dijon, and some dried dill. I love it. Definitely going to bring this into the rotation 🙂

      Thanks Leslie! The sauce makes it feel a little different than the standard baked salmon.

    I wish I could get my hubby to eat salmon. I can barely cook it in the house without him turning his face up to the smell! This looks fantastic!!

    • JulieWunder February 6, 2016 at 9:28 am - Reply

      Oh no!!! I’m so glad I don’t have that problem. My hubby loves fish.

    I don’t eat fish. I’ll catch em, but not eat them LOL But my parents love Salmon, and mydad won’t eat it without dipping sauce. I’ll pass this onto my mom for next time she cooks.

    Salmon and fill are a match made in heaven! Adding Greek yogurt to it takes it to a whole other level!

    I love yogurt sauces on salmon, although usually use them when I serve cold poached salmon, which is my husband’s favorite preparation. I never thought to add horseradish before – definitely trying that!

    I try to eat fish once a week but I’m not as good about it as I should be. This recipe looks easy and yummy! I had salmon burgers from Trader Joes last week- that counts right?!

    Lemon, dill, garlic, yogurt, salmon = perfection. Salmon is so easy, once you figure out your timings and such. And the fat content keeps you from messing it up so easily. Definitely a great fish for people scared of cooking fish to try!

    We love salmon! And your sauce looks so good–why have I never thought to add horseradish to salmon before? That’s genius!

      Thanks Jenny! I love the little kick it gives.

    I eat salmon once a week or I should
    say 2 meals of it one day per week.
    I enjoy leftovers of good meals.
