Dietitian's Tip: 

Salmon is an excellent source of omega-3 fats, which can lower the risks associated with heart disease. Try this recipe with brown rice and steamed asparagus.

Ingredients: 

1 cup plain fat-free yogurt
2 tsp minced fresh dill
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1 tsp capers
2 tsp minced parsley
1 tsp minced chives
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 lb salmon steaks

Preparation: 
  1. In a small bowl, combine the first six ingredients and set aside. Spray the racks of your grill with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Brush the salmon steaks with olive oil and grill them over medium-hot coals for 4 minutes per side, or just until the salmon flakes with a fork.
  3. Transfer the salmon to a platter and serve with dill sauce on the side.
