Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. ~Hippocrates


Is a rainy day – just right for cooking! Everyone gets to eat well and you get another healthy recipe!

Note: Although the sauce tastes deliciously rich, it is nearly fat free! Quick to make and very elegant. Serve with a green vegetable and some nice new potatoes, either boiled or roasted.


1/2 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp honey
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp chopped fresh dill
1 lb salmon
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup chopped shallots or sweet onions


Blend the yogurt, mustard, honey, lemon juice, and dill,in a bowl. Cover, and refrigerate until time to serve.

Place the salmon in a saucepan with the white wine and water and shallots. Make sure the fish is covered. Add more water if necessary.

Cover the saucepan, and cook over medium heat 10 to 12 minutes, until salmon is easily flaked with a fork. Drain, and top with the yogurt sauce.

  1. Excellent recipe… the dash of honey must really make the dish even more special!

    • Thanks for your comment. This sauce is truly a great melding of favors that delighted me! I was worried that the lemon might accentuate the tartness of the yogurt, but the honey tones it down to just the right blend. Also, Greek yogurt, even non fat, is very creamy in texture.

  2. Hello, Neat post. There is a problem with your web site in internet explorer, would test this?
    IE still is the marketplace leader and a big portion of other folks will leave out
    your wonderful writing because of this problem.

    • I tested and it is working properly. I’m not sure what problem you encountered exactly, but please let me know if it persists, and some details of what is not working. Thanks.
