"This dip fits perfectly with grilled salmon. Serve with rice. Greek style yogurt is a bit more sour than regular plain yogurt." — Carolin

Great dip. If you can't find Greek style yogurt, take a carton of plain yogurt and let drain over cheesecloth for a few hours. The liquid will drain out of it and what is left in the cheesecloth is called yogurt cheese (delicious mixed with some herbs etc. for a dip) or Greek Yogurt. Greek Yogurt can also be found at Trader Joe's or some supermarkets are now carrying it.
For my tastes this recipe calls for WAYYYYY TO MUCH DILL, so I cut the amount in half and it was still way to much! Since I didnt have any lemon pepper I just squeezed lemon onto the salmon and fresh ground black pepper, sprinkled a little garlic salt ontop as well...rubbed it into the steak. Put it in a foil packet and set in the fridge for about an hour. Baked in the oven at 375 for 20 minutes. Tasted okay... will use even less dill next time.
I'm always looking for good salmon recipes. This one is always well-received. I often just broil it in the oven rather than grill it. The avocado dip is great...if I don't have yogurt, I'll sometimes use sour cream instead. This is great with corn on the cob and roasted potatoes.
I've made this salmon several times and it's always a hit. It's particularly good in the summer when done on the grill; the avocado dip tastes cool and fresh.
Delicious! I used fat free sour cream in place of the yogurt. Instead of salmon, I used sole filets and broiled them. It worked really well, and the dinner party I served them to really liked both the fish and the sauce!
This is one of my go to recipes. I have been making it for over 6 years. When I first started making it, I had never heard of Greek yogurt (and had an even tougher time finding it) so I used to use sour cream. The Greek yogurt makes a huge difference though! This is such a simple recipe and the avocado dip is good on just about anything
I really like this recipie, I added a bit of extra garlic, and instad of using lemon pepper, I put some lemon juice on the salmon. The dip was delicious and went perfectly, but I don't think the rice went that well the the salmon. Will make again..Yum! :O)
Just the idea of avocado with salmon is great. We use our usual guacamole recipe with this and it turns out great! Both my parents and my in-laws loved it.
