Orange Salmon with Yogurt Sauce

The yogurt sauce originally just tasted like yogurt so I upped the orange juice and capers to make it taste like something not bland.  Original is from Fine Cooking.

Serves 2
Orange Salmon with Yogurt Sauce
2 8 oz salmon filets
1 tsp orange zest
olive oil
salt and pepper

For the sauce:
1/2 tsp orange zest
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
2 Tbsp orange juice
2 Tbsp capers, rinsed, drained and chopped
3/4 cup whole milk yogurt (un-flavored)

1. Preheat the oven to 400

2. Place the salmon skin side down on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil

3. Sprinkle the orange zest and salt pepper on them and rub it in, let this sit while the oven preheats

4. Cook the salmon for about 10-12 minutes in the oven

5. While the salmons cooking mix all the sauce ingredients together

6. Serve the salmon with a dollop of sauce on top.
