It's the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and I know this may seem like a strange recipe to post just before our holiday season kicks off. However, I am actually making this for our Thanksgiving feast. See we have a relative coming to dinner with dietary restrictions. According to my Mom, he can't even eat turkey, which I find kind of unbelievable but if it's true, it's also cruel and unusual. Anyway, she asked me to help her out and make a healthy protein that would look great on our table and that others may enjoy as well. This dish popped right into my mind.
In my last post, I mentioned how I tend to cook Salmon in a foil pack and get creative with all of the ingredients I'll add to it. However, if you talk to any chef and ask them how to season salmon, they'll say two words: salt and pepper. I believe this to be true especially when it comes to a fresh, gorgeous filet. So in addition to Asian style and Italian style, I also sear salmon in a pan with salt and pepper. Then, I serve it with a fresh, horseradish dill sauce for an added dose of flavor. This sauce looks creamy, tastes rich but is actually healthy due to it's Greek yogurt base.
So if you're in the same boat as me, and are looking for a healthy dish or even a fish dish to serve this Thanksgiving, try this one. Or make this when all the festivities are over and you're trying to recover from days of indulging. The recipe serves 4 but I'll be doubling it for our larger party.
