Salmon is one of the few types of fish I will cook and eat. I cannot stand to eat meat, and eating fish proves to be a chore for me most of the time. When I had plans to invite friends over for dinner, I decided to make something we could all enjoy. I also wanted to make something that required minimal effort on my part, as I hate being the hostess who is stuck in the kitchen during her own dinner party.
This dish ended up being a sure fire hit. Fish topped with yogurt and mustard tends to retain a lot of moisture. What you end up having is a very moist fish that goes down easily. This recipe also ended up being quite healthy.
