Poached Salmon with Dill Sauce

My usual Sunday post is a post about a healthy ingredient.  I’ve already written about salmon, but wanted to share this salmon recipe with you.  It is a healthy alternative to all the super fattening recipes I keep seeing for St. Patrick’s Day.  Salmon is quite Irish and even the dill sauce is healthy because it uses fat-free Greek yogurt as a base.   Served with a side of colcannon, it makes a great St. Patrick’s Day meal.   Also, it is starting to feel like spring, and both salmon and dill just say spring to me, so it was the perfect dish this week!

  1. Stir together yogurt, mustard, dill, salt, and pepper.

  3. Add chicken broth to a large deep skillet. Bring to a boil.
