Serves 2
  • 2 (5 oz) salmon fillets
  • 1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 6 lemon slices
  • Curried Yogurt
  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Pinch of sugar or drop of honey
  • 1/2 tsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp chopped fresh mint

Preheat oven to 400°. Prepare 2 sheets of 15″ long parchment paper.

Place each fillet in center of parchment. Cut 3 deep slits into each fillet. Tuck basil into each slit. Season with salt and pepper and place 3 lemon slices on top of each piece. Fold the parchment paper in half. Begin rolling and pressing the edges of parchment together toward the fish. Place on a baking sheet and cook until salmon is no longer translucent, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, to make yogurt sauce, in a small bowl, combine yogurt, curry powder, cayenne, garlic, salt, sugar, cilantro and mint together.

Using scissors or a knife, carefully cut through parchment. Transfer fish to plates and top with yogurt sauce.
