08-02-11_salmn.jpgThis recipe, from All Recipes, is presented as an “outdoor grill” recipe. After customizing the meal to yield 3 servings, I used a grill pan on my stove top, with fine results. Instead of using salmon steaks, I used fillets, and these cooked in less than 4 minutes. Basically, this food will taste as good as the quality of your salmon. If you are confident of that, you’ll have a tasty meal.

I chose this recipe because the “avocado dip” was not merely a guacamole. I used regular plain yogurt (rather than Greek-style), and this provided a nice creamy dip. It was not too thin. Instead of dried dill, I used 1 Tbsp. of fresh dill. I was stuck on the “lemon pepper” requirement for the salmon spice rub, so I used a mixture of salt and black pepper instead (so it’s not too creative!). My avocado dip needed 1 tsp. of salt and 1/2 tsp. of black pepper. This salmon tasted great with the cool, garlicky avocado dip.

RECIPE: if you eat salmon, do try this meal

Next time, I want to make “Warm Turkey and White Bean Salad,” from Express Lane Diabetic Cooking, by Robyn Webb. It sounds like a delicious combination of ingredients. Come back to my site on Tuesday, March 18, to see my results.
