Baked Salmon with Avocado-Dill Yogurt

(Contains 4 of the heart healthy ingredients listed above!)




1 avocado, diced

1/2 cup Organic Greek yogurt

3 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

1 clove garlic

2 tablespoons lemon juice


Freshly ground black pepper

4 fillets (6 ounces each) salmon

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil




Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


Prepare yogurt sauce by combining avocado, Greek yogurt, dill, garlic, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon water, and salt and pepper to taste in a food processor or blender until smooth and creamy. (If necessary, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.) Set aside.


Place fish skin side down on a foil-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper and brush with olive oil. Bake fish until just cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes. (Thicker center-cut fillets will take longer, while thinner fillets cut from the tail section will cook faster.)


Served topped with avocado-dill yogurt.
