Yogurt-Dill Sauce for Salmon


This smooth, rich sauce transforms a plain piece of poached fish into a gourmet delight.



  • 1 cup plain full-fat yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • A few grinds of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill

  1. Mix yogurt, lemon juice, egg yolks, salt, pepper, and mustard in the top of a double boiler. Be sure it is not an aluminum pan or the egg yolks may discolor.
  2. Whisk together and heat over simmering water, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. This should take about 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, stir in dill, and let cool slightly before serving over poached salmon or other fish.
