Method

  1. Mix the yogurt with the mustard, lemon zest, dill and capers and season with pepper. Now use to coat the salmon really well.
  2. If serving now, either grill the salmon on foil for 6-8 mins (there is no need to turn), or barbecue for 3-4 mins on each side, preferably in fish grill to make turning easier. Serve with new potatoes and lemon wedges, alongside green veg and salad leaves.

I baked the salmon in the oven. The topping provided a very nice, tangy balance to the rich fish. Great midweek supper with some new potatoes and green veg.

for us the topping with the yoghurt did not really work. maybe next time i should use less yoghurt or not use it at all but it was very overpowering and i found the consistency weird of the yoghurt together with the consinstency of the salmon....

I thought the marinade tasted a bit bland so added a few drops of fish sauce and salt, but messed up and added too much salt! I added some extra yoghurt, garlic, squeeze of lemon juice, couple of tbsp mayo and fresh mint and it was delicious! Will do this one again but with the additions.

Was not sure about the marinade before cooking, nearly blew my head off but - once cooked, absolutely delicious however, did not enjoy the leftovers once cold - will cook again even the children tucked in.

Forgot to say that I also baked it in the oven as opposed to grilling as my fillets of samlon were quite fat - it took about 18 mins at about 180C.

Lovely salmon, I used three fillets so am not sure that my scaling down was entirely accurate and discovered that I only had a teaspoon or so of dijon mustard and it could definitely take more. We had it with potatoes, griddled asparagus and salad.

This was absolutely lovely. I used trout fillets and it turned out perfectly. Served with minted new potatoes, broccoli and salad.

Absolutely delicious. The marinade was perfect (although I messed around with the quantities slightly as there were only 2 of us). Will definitely be cooking it again - wondering whether it would work with chicken as well? Quick, easy and delicious - would definitely recommend

This is a really light and tasty dinner and so easy to make. Will definitely be making this again, particularly on summers evenings. I served it with salad, asparagus and jersey royals.
