Salmon is one of the best food sources of omega-3 fatty acids, a type of healthy fat that has been linked to promoting heart health and brain health. Currently, it’s recommended that men get at least 1.6 grams of omega-3’s per day and women get at least 1.1 grams of omega-3’s per day. This recipe provides more than those requirements in just one serving!

It’s also packed with high-quality protein, which is key for keeping you full and satisfied after a meal – and supporting muscle health. If you’re hitting the gym regularly, eating enough protein each day will help support those fitness goals.

And as a bonus – it’s an excellent source of most B vitamins (which are involved in a variety of metabolic processes including those that make energy in your body) and Vitamin D (key for immune health).



  • 1 pound Svenfish salmon fillet
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, divided in half
  • ⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons shelled pistachios (or more to taste)
  • 2 tablespoons golden raisins (or more to taste)


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Line a baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper (for easier clean up).

  • Place the salmon on the baking sheet. Season with half of the salt.

  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the Greek yogurt, parsley, dill, lemon juice, lemon zest, and remaining salt. Spread over the salmon fillet.

  • Bake the salmon for approximately 19 to 23 minutes for a thick fillet, or approximately 10 to 15 minutes for a thin fillet or individual cut portions. The fish is cooked through when it flakes easily with a fork.
    (The USDA recommends cooking fish to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F for food safety reasons. Some people prefer the texture of salmon when it reaches a peak temperature lower than 145 degrees F)

  • Let the salmon rest for a few minutes, then top with the pistachios and golden raisins. Serve and enjoy!
