  • Preheat oven to 325, set rack to the lower third of oven. Clean salmon. Season with Salt and Pepper on Both Sides. In a non-stick skillet or cast iron pan brown Salmon on both sides for 3 minutes in Coconut Oil or Butter. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile in a bowl combine broth, shallots, lemon juice, garlic, red pepper chili flakes and Cayenne Pepper. Set aside.
  • Once all salmon is browned. Lower the flame to medium and add the sauce mixture to the skillet. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a whisk to incorporate the salmon bits into the sauce. Cook sauce until it has reduced to 1/3 of a cup.
  • Remove the sauce from the heat and whisk in the butter and yogurt.
  • Place Salmon back in the pan and put in the oven until it is cooked through (about 20 minutes).
  • Season with fresh parsley and a lemon wedge for serving!


Save the left over sauce to serve over steamed vegetables the next day for some great flavor!
