Catching Up on the Backlog 3: Broiled Salmon with Citrus Yogurt Sauce

It’s actually chilly!  I repeat . . . it’s actually chilly.  This statement might not mean much to many, but to this SoCal girl transplanted from Ohio, this is cause for much rejoicing.  A fall day that feels like fall.

I won’t go on about the weather any longer because we are technically in the “recipe, and only the recipe” series.  Let me just add that if it actually rains, as per the weather forecast, I may become giddy.

This new salmon recipe recently made me giddy because it was just SO easy.  To start with, I tossed together the citrus yogurt sauce.  A little Greek yogurt, some olive oil, some grated lime zest, fresh squeezed lime juice, some orange zest, a little fresh squeezed orange juice, a bit of salt, and some honey – that’s all this great sauce requires.

I just whisked that all together, along with a little water, and put it aside while I broiled my salmon.

For the salmon, I just rinsed it and patted it dry, placed it on a foil lined broiling pan, and sprinkled with salt and pepper.

I broiled the fish for about 7 minutes, then covered with some foil, and broiled another 7 minutes until it was cooked through.  I served with the citrus sauce, some roasted broccolini, brown rice, and roasted tomato slices,  and called it a day .
