Known for its distinct deep orange-red color, fatty fish like salmon tends to have a slightly more assertive flavour and this lingering fishy taste can be unappetizing to some. But fear not fish haters, for this mild tangy herb greek yogurt sauce might just be the trigger to awakening your inner pescatarian!
Creamy yet light, Farmer’s Union greek yogurt is an excellent source of proteins, probiotics and calcium. Adding a natural healthy spin to any dish, greek yogurt gives that slight tangy flavour rather than a sour punch. Just mix it into the nutritious green blend of herbs and it becomes the perfect solution to complement that “fishy-ness” of the salmon.
Adding on to the numerous health benefits in the sauce, salmon is also packed with an impressive list of omega-3 fatty acids, proteins and nutrients. Grilling is one quick way to bring out the rich moist flavours of salmon meat and together with its beautifully browned crisp skin – it’s just the perfect melt-in-your-mouth meal.
Crispy on the outside and juicy inside, enjoy this harmonious mix of textures together with generous servings of green herb yogurt sauce. With just a handful of simple ingredients, you can easily whip up this elegant-looking, nutrients-rich dish in just half an hour!
