A recipe from the blog : I Wash... You Dry. http://iwashyoudry.com/2012/04/19/greek-salmon-with-tzatziki-sauce/ It would be better to do the Tzatziki sauce ahead of time. A few hours or the day before.

I love recipes that are quick and easy to make but so flavorful! I grilled the salmon instead of baking, I used the Cavender's seasoning sparingly because of the MSG (I received this in a Zaar spice swap a couple of year's ago and had never opened it) I also added dried basil and oregano. I cut the recipe in half except for adding more cucumber to the tzatziki otherwise I thought the sauce was perfect. We loved the tzatziki with the salmon and it perked up the potatoes I served along side. Thanks Boomette for another great recipe. Made for ZWT 9 by one of The Appliance Killers

For the Tzatziki Sauce

Directions See How It's Made
- Salmon: Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- Line a baking sheet with tinfoil and coat generously with cooking spray.
- Brush salmon fillets with olive oil and sprinkle with the Greek Seasoning. Place on baking sheet. Bake on the middle rack for 13-15 minutes or until the Salmon is no longer opaque and it flakes easily.
- Tzatziki: Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together. Store in fridge until ready to use. (flavor becomes better when it's stored in the fridge.).
