Baked Salmon with Spring Salad and Caper Yogurt Sauce

5
3 ratings
This Baked Salmon with Spring Salad and Caper Yogurt Sauce is the perfect spring meal. By baking the salmon as one large piece instead of slicing it into portions first, you end up conserving more of the natural moisture of the fish. Combined with a light Spring Salad and some tangy Caper Yogurt Sauce, this is one recipe you won't want to miss out on.

Cooking InstructionsHide images
step 1
Preheat the oven to 355 degrees F (180 degrees C).
step 2
Lay Onion (1), Lemon (1), and a handful of Fresh Dill (2 handfuls) evenly on a baking tray. Place the Salmon Fillet (1) on top, and season with Salt (to taste) and Ground Black Pepper (to taste). Sprinkle another handful of dill on top of the fillet.
step 3
Pour Water (3 Tbsp) and White Wine (3 Tbsp) around the salmon fillet. Cover the baking tray with aluminum foil. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes until salmon is cooked through.
step 4
While the salmon is baking, heat a griddle pan over medium-high heat until very hot. Place the Lemons (2) pieces cut side down on the griddle pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until a nice char is formed.
step 5
In a medium mixing bowl, mix the Plain Greek Yogurt (1 cup), Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (2 Tbsp), Capers (2 Tbsp), Fresh Parsley (2 Tbsp), Fresh Dill (2 Tbsp), Fresh Mint (2 Tbsp), Salt (1 pinch), Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch), and the zest and 2 tsp juice of a Lemon (1) with a whisk. Cover and chill in the fridge until serve.
step 6
In a large pot filled with lightly salted boiling water, cook the Snow Peas (1 2/3 cups) for 2 minutes and Asparagus (15 stalks) for 5 minutes. Immediately transfer to a bowl of water mixed with Ice (as needed) once cooked.
step 7
Slice asparagus into 2-3cm long batons.
step 8
In a small mixing bowl, add Extra-Virgin Olive Oil (1/3 cup), White Wine Vinegar (2 Tbsp), Salt (1 pinch), and Ground Black Pepper (1 pinch), whisk to combine.
step 9
In a large mixing bowl, combine snow peas, asparagus, Watercress (4 1/3 cups), Fennel Bulb (1/2), and Red Onion (1/2) together, drizzle with dressing and toss to coat.
step 10
Crumble the Feta Cheese (2/3 cup) on top.
step 11
Serve the salmon with charred lemon for squeezing over the top, alongside the Caper Yogurt Sauce and Spring Salad.
