Grilled Salmon Wrap with Feta and Yogurt Dill Sauce

1 Comment

Since today I had the morning off from work, I decided to treat myself right. I woke up early, relaxed with a little Today Show, drank my usual 16 oz of coffee, and hit the gym! I will go into details about my workouts later, but this post is all about the awesome salmon wrap I made for a recovery lunch afterwards. To season the salmon, I used a combo of spices that I personally love. However a little lemon pepper, honey, and paprika would be tasty too!

Serves 1 ( But can be easily doubled!)

Ingredients:

4 oz salmon filet

¼ tsp salt

¼ tsp paprika

¼ tsp pepper

¼ tsp Cajun seasoning

¼ tsp cayenne pepper

1 Tbsp. greek yogurt

¼ tsp dill

5 capers

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 whole wheat wrap (Flatout)

1 green onion chopped

1 Tbsp. crumbled feta cheese

1 Romaine lettuce leaf

Directions:

Rinse the salmon filet and pat dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle the first five spices over the salmon and gently rub. If the filet has skin on one side, place the salmon skin side down in a non-stick pan over medium heat. While the salmon is cooking, combine yogurt, capers, dill, and mustard in a small bowl. Spread the yogurt mixture over the wheat wrap and top with green onions, feta cheese, and lettuce leaf. Flip the salmon after about 4 minutes. While the other side is cooking, gently peel the skin off the filet and discard. This should be relatively easy and will come off in one piece. After the salmon has cooked about 4 minutes on the other side, remove and let cool for a few minutes. Once cooled, slice the filet and place on top of the lettuce. Roll up the wrap burrito style by folding in the ends and you have a delicious and healthy lunch!
