Baked Salmon with a Green Onion Garnish

Cooking Light OCTOBER 1999

  • Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 5 ounces salmon and about 2 tablespoons yogurt sauce)


  • 1 (8-ounce) carton plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup diced seeded peeled cucumber
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons stone-ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 (2-pound) salmon fillet (2 inches thick)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 8 green onion tops, split lengthwise


Spoon yogurt onto several layers of heavy-duty paper towels; spread to 1/2-inch thickness. Cover with additional paper towels, and let stand 5 minutes. Scrape into a bowl using a rubber spatula. Combine the yogurt, cucumber, and the next 4 ingredients (cucumber through honey); cover and refrigerate.

Preheat oven to 425°.

Place fillet on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Brush fillet with oil and soy sauce. Bring water to a boil in a medium saucepan; add onion strips. Cook 10 seconds or until limp. Drain. Arrange onion strips over fillet. Bake at 425° for 20 minutes or until fillet flakes easily when tested with a fork. Serve with yogurt sauce.
