Ingredients

  • 140g Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • zest 1 lemon
  • 1 tbsp chopped dill
  • 1 tbsp small caper , lightly chopped
  • 8 portions or 1 side of fresh salmon , scaled (see tips below if using whole)
  • lemon wedges, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Mix the yogurt with the mustard, lemon zest, dill and capers and season with pepper. Now use to coat the salmon really well.

  • STEP 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.

RECIPE TIPS
COOK A WHOLE SIDE OF SALMON

If using a whole side of salmon instead of fillets, roast it at 200C/180C fan/gas 6 for 25 mins or cook on foil in a kettle barbecue for 15 mins. Check regularly, as cooking times vary depending on the thickness of the fish.
