Salmon is so delicate and tasty it needs an elegant presentation like this where it is served with a simple yoghurt dill sauce. Serve with steamed asparagus.

I made this for my fiance and another couple for a small dinner get together. WOW!! The sauce was so easy and reminded us a bit of hollandaise sauce and was wonderful. I will absolutely make it again. (I added a tad more honey than the recipe called for.) Thank you for sharing Karena - 29 Sep 2008
