Salmon, packed with omega-3’s and a good source of protein, along with other meaty filets like swordfish and mahi-mahi, are fantastic when infused with the flavourful char of a grill. It’s a great option when looking for a healthy protein to toss on the grates.
This recipe is based on a version of poached salmon served cold alongside a yogurt-based sauce with lemon juice, capers and dill that you’ll often find at brunches, bridal showers and potlucks. But here, the salmon is grilled, giving it tons of added flavour, and it can be served chilled, like the classic, or warm from the grill.
Because this version of salmon with yogurt sauce is so versatile, it works well for any kind of entertaining, whether it’s for a large group or a small family. The sauce can be made ahead so the flavours have time to meld, and the salmon can be grilled in advance, too. Then, everything can be refrigerated and cooled for a refreshing and light summer meal or as part of a buffet.
