I have been on a serious greek yogurt and honey kick. In case you don't know, greek yogurt is a creamy delicious, low fat, low cal, high protein treat that I've been eating for breakfast by the truckload. I love it because it really holds me over until lunchtime. And of course, who doesn't love honey?
Which brings me to tonight's dinner...something I actually invented myself! It contains just a few ingredients and is so unbelievably tasty...
Hazelnut Honey Salmon
This recipe is a nice little dinner for two but could easily be doubled.
2 x 4oz. salmon fillets
1/8 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
1/8 cup honey
3 pinches dried tarragon
1/4 cup chopped toasted hazelnuts
salt and pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F). Line baking pan with foil and spray with nonstick baking spray. Arrange salmon on pan and salt and pepper to taste.
2. In a bowl, mix together chopped toasted hazelnuts, yogurt, honey, and tarragon, stir until mixed through. Spread equal parts yogurt mixture on both fillets.
3. Bake 15 minutes or until salmon flakes with a fork.
Here's what it looks like precooked.
I'll tell you all about the peanut butter blondies with chocolate ganache that I made for dessert as soon as I get home from a little girl's night celebration.
