Broiled Salmon with Citrus Yogurt Sauce

I’m going to take part in a Challenge called Postaweek2011, which challenges bloggers to post at least one post each week on their blogs… the idea is that if you do something regularly, it will become easier.  So for week 1, here is my recipe for the day, and it just so happens to be what I made for dinner tonight:

Broiled Salmon with Citrus Yogurt Sauce (From


  • 1 (3-lb) piece salmon fillet with skin
  • 3/8 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup low fat plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • 1 teaspoon of finely grated fresh lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of finely grated fresh orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon of fresh orange juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of mild honey (to taste)


Preheat broiler (our broiler has a high, medium and low setting–I used the “medium” setting).  Line rack of broiler pan with foil and lightly oil the foil with olive oil (or Pam).

Pat fish dry and check for bones.  Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper, then broil 4 inches from heat 7 minutes. Cover fish loosely with foil and continue broiling until just cooked through, 7 to 9 minutes more.

While salmon broils, whisk together all sauce ingredients in a bowl until combined.

Serve salmon with sauce.

This salmon has been a hit in our household since it’s delicious and really easy to make!  It’s also quite healthy and has a lot of protein.  I served it today with a recipe I sort of made up on my own for string beans–I sauteed them in a pan on the stove with olive oil and garlic, then toward the end I added a little bit of water.  They were quite a hit.
