When choosing your salmon, you can filet and remove pin bones yourself – or just ask your fish monger or seafood counter to do it for you! Skin off or skin on – that’s your choice (but so many of the healthy omega 3 fattty acids lie right then in the subcutaneous fat.

Many recipes call for cooking salmon around 400F degrees, but I’ve found that it really can dry it out quickly. This salmon recipe bakes up to a succulent medium-rare when baked in the oven at a lower temperature – 275 F degrees! It always turns out perfect and is off the hook! If you don’t want to do the whole side of salmon, using individual portions works just the same.

I originally created this dish using for Litehouse Foods using their OPAdipity Cucumber Dill Yogurt Dip along with a toss of fresh berries in a tangy mustard vinaigrette. But, it is also easily replicated using plain Greek yogurt if not available – I’ve included both preparations.  Happy New Year!
