  • 1 (2 lbs) salmon fillet, cut into 4 portions
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoon finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1-1/2 tablespoon capers, drained, rinsed, and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet.
  • Arrange the salmon on the baking sheet. Drizzle salmon with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Roast until the salmon is opaque throughout, 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the yogurt with the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil, orange zest, chopped parsley, capers, and orange juice. Stir to combine. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Drizzle over the salmon fillets.
  • Serve with salad or steamed vegetables.
