When the weather starts to get a little warmer, and I start thinking spring, I automatically think salmon. This recipe is so easy, but so delicious. The dill sauce is better if you put it together a few hours ahead of time, but you can eat it right away if you don’t have that kind of time. The whole entree only takes about fifteen minutes to put together and is company worthy. And, to make it even better, it is good for you. The salmon is poached in chicken broth that only has 1/2 gram of fat per cup, and the dill sauce uses fat free Greek yogurt. And, the salmon itself contains healthy fat making this a wonderful entree for every possible reason. The recipe is one I adapted from this one on the Taste of Home website.
Poached Salmon with Dill Sauce
- 1 lb salmon filets
- 1 32 oz. carton chicken broth
- 1 cup fat free Greek yogurt
- 2 Tbsps. coarse ground prepared mustard
- 2 Tbsps. fresh dill, chopped
- salt and pepper to taste.
- Stir together yogurt, mustard, dill, salt, and pepper.
- Cover and refrigerate until serving.
- Add chicken broth to a large deep skillet. Bring to a boil.
- Add salmon to broth. If broth does not cover salmon add water to cover.
- Boil just until salmon is cooked through being careful not to overcook (about 10 minutes).
- Serve with dill sauce.

This is a beautiful dish. I was approving posts on Triberr and had to click over and take a look when I saw the title. I’m planning to try this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
