Spring Table: Salmon with French Sorrel Yogurt Sauce

By  | 

French sorrel is leafy green herb that can be tossed in salads or used in cooking. Like spinach, sorrel is high in vitamins A and C and potassium, but it's strong, lemon-y taste make it unique (and a good accent for salmon, which pairs well with lemon and other citrus-y flavors). Kate from the blog and meal-planning service Kate's Thoughts for Food shared this recipe for salmon with french sorrel yogurt sauce, which can be made in about three steps and 20 minutes.

“What I especially love about cooking with fresh, seasonal ingredients is that they make your job in the kitchen so much easier,” writes Kate. “The fresh ingredients speak for themselves and don’t need to be complicated.”
