    Fabulous recipe, or close to as I ran out of gas so used a George Forman grill. Used fresh dill as I didn't read the ingredients properly, and couldn't find lemon pepper so used lemon juice, black pepper & salt. Very liberal with measures as serving 2, and what a lovely avocado sauce with a big garlicky-bite! Served it with GF grilled cherry toms, cucumber and new potatoes. My partner who hates avocado loved the dish, will be doing this again!  -  19 Apr 2016


    Great dip. If you can't find Greek style yogurt, take a carton of plain yogurt and let drain over cheesecloth for a few hours. The liquid will drain out of it and what is left in the cheesecloth is called yogurt cheese (delicious mixed with some herbs etc. for a dip) or Greek Yogurt. Greek Yogurt can also be found at Trader Joe's or some supermarkets are now carrying it.  -  03 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I'm always looking for good salmon recipes. This one is always well-received. I often just broil it in the oven rather than grill it. The avocado dip is great...if I don't have yogurt, I'll sometimes use sour cream instead. This is great with corn on the cob and roasted potatoes.  -  14 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
