Roasted Salmon with Herbed Yogurt and Oven Baked Rice

I love to make Salmon for dinner - it is so fast and good for you and I always feel like I am made a really nice meal after its all done. My favorite things to serve with this dish is roasted veggies and couscous or oven baked rice (recipe below) but it is also good with mashed or roasted potatoes.

Roasted Salmon with Herbed Yogurt

1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 Tbsp Dijon mustard
2 Tbsp fresh dill, finely chopped
2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 side of salmon (3 pounds) or 8 fillets (6 ounces each)

Preheat oven to 450. Combine yogurt, mustard, dill and parsley; season with salt and pepper. Place Salmon skin side sown on a rimed baking sheet. Spread yogurt mixture on salmon. Roast until opaque throughout 15-20 minutes (8 minutes for fillets). Serve warm.

Recipe from Everyday Food

Oven Baked Rice

1 onion finely diced
5 mushrooms sliced (optional)
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1/4 cup butter
1 cup Rice
2 cups chicken broth

Cook onion and mushrooms in olive oil and 1/2 of the butter on medium heat until cooked, add the rice and remaining butter and increase the heat to medium high heat and cook until the rice is toasted. Transfer to a covered baking dish and add broth. Cook for 45minutes or until rice is tender. (if you do not have 45 minutes to allow the rice to bake add the broth to your pot on the stove, cover and turn heat to low. cook for approximately 20 minutes or until rice is tender).
