The sauce for this dish really makes it! We just absolutely loved it, in fact it's become my new go-to salmon recipe. I used no fat Greek yogurt because it's what we hand on hand and found I needed to add a little more orange juice to smooth it out. Fresh flavours yet very satisfying!
This could not have been easier to prepare and the results were fantastic. I did not have yogurt so I substituted low-fat sour cream and it was wonderful. So simple, fast and rewarding.
I reduced the recipe to serve 2, and used sockeye salmon. In a well warmed oven (30+ minutes), it only took ~ 8minutes for the salmon to cook. I felt that the orange had a somewhat bitter accent to it - possibly because the grater I used wasn't fine enough. Doubtful I will make again.
O my. Fantastic recipe! Fast, easy, healthy and tastes amazing!
It doesn't get much simpler, easier or better than this. The tastes are amazing. Just lucky to live in the Pacific NW where we can get outstanding salmon year round. Had it with some wonderful sockeye tonight, the second time I have made this recipe. Cut the sauce in half as there were only two of us. The roasted zest on the salmon really makes it. Served with rice and asparagus. This is now a regular once a month. In summer I will try it on the grille. Bet it works great there as well Maybe on cedar.
one word: AWESOME! My fam raved about it and ate every single bite. I also used the yogurt-caper sauce in lou of tarter sauce with homemade fish-sticks. Nice to have a non-mayo option
Made it last night and it was fabulous.
Since my wife is dieting, I skipped the olive oil in the sauce and used a non-fat greek yogurt instead. She still raved over it.
I love Molly Stevens. I'd cook a doorstop if she gave me a recipe for it. The citrus was lovely with the fish and the capers made the sauce memorable. Wonderful recipe for when people come over.
Good, inexpensive, easy Friday night dinner recipe. The yogurt sauce is a good accompaniament to the salmon.
Outstanding. The sauce was spectacular...the capers really made the dish - make sure not to over-cook the salmon, it is easy to do if it isn't watched. We had this with the Smashed Potatoes and the Roasted Asparagus with Parmesan and this made for a wonderful dinner. THANK YOU "FINE COOKING" !
