Salmon with Tarragon-Yogurt Sauce

Source: Everyday Food, June 2008

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole-milk Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh tarragon, plus leaves for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest, plus 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3 pounds skinless salmon fillet, cut into 8 pieces, or 8 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each)

Directions

  1. Make sauce: Stir together yogurt, chopped tarragon, and lemon zest and juice; season with salt and pepper.

  2. Heat broiler, with rack set 4 inches from heat. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place salmon on sheet, and season with salt and pepper. Broil until opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes. (Keep at room temperature up to 1 hour.) Serve salmon, garnished with tarragon leaves, with sauce alongside.

Cook's Note

Sauce can be refrigerated up to 1 day.

    This sounds easy and good. I will try the recipe in the summer when I have tarragon growing in a barrel on my deck. Luckily, Greek yogurt is available in most supermarkets in our area.

    I found it really difficult to find Greek Yogurt, so I used Middle Eastern yogurt: Labna. The taste of this yogurt is very strong and not suited towards American taste buds. Wouldn't try this again.
