Pan Seared Salmon with Quick Dill Yogurt Sauce


Monday, you’re back.  Back to rushing home to get dinner on the table, no?  Man that can be such a lame feeling.  So let me give you a little hookup to make that process a bit easier this week: Pan Seared Salmon with Quick Dill Yogurt Sauce.

You can have this one on the table in less than 15-hows that for quick?  All the salmon needs about 8-10 minutes on the stove.  Total score.


But the best part about this dish in my humble opinion?  The sauce.  Because, well, in case you haven’t caught on, I’m a bit of a condiment gal.  And any super flavorful condiment I can whip up in a matter of a couple of minutes?  Happiness.


The fish comes out savory, rich warm and buttery.  Pour a cool, garlicky, tart sauce on top and you will most definitely be in business.  Great combo, guys…and something fabulous to add to your need-a-quickie repertoire!  Have a great start to your week!

Pan Seared Salmon with Quick Dill Yogurt Sauce


1 Tablespoon Olive Oil

1 Tablespoon Unsalted Butter

4 (5-6 Ounce) Wild CaughtSalmon Filets, seasoned with salt and black pepper, skin on

1 Cup Whole Milk Yogurt (greek or regular both work here)

1 Large Garlic Clove, grated or pressed

1 Tablespoon Fresh Chopped Dillweed

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher or Sea Salt

1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper


Melt olive oil and butter in a large cast iron or frying skillet over medium high heat.  Add salmon, skin side up and cook until the sides are cooked almost halfway through the filet, about 4-5 minutes depending on thickness.  Flip filets over and cook until salmon is just cooked through.

While salmon is cooking whisk the yogurt, garlic, dillweed, salt and pepper together in  a small bowl.  Serve salmon topped with yogurt sauce.  Serves 4.
