This was good and very easy to make, but part way through eating, we both decided it was too much acid (yoghurt, lemon juice, olives) that needed a couple of teaspoons of honey in there to balance things out. We then decided the sauce would be perfect with lamb chops. Thanks for posting

Directions See How It's Made
- Reserve 2 tablespoons olives. Blend remaining olives, yogurt, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, turmeric, salt and pepper flakes; set aside.
- Rinse any ice glaze from frozen salmon under cold water; pat dry with paper towel. Heat a heavy nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brush both sides of salmon with oil. Place salmon in heated skillet and cook, uncovered, about 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Shake pan occasionally to keep fish from sticking.
- Turn salmon over and sprinkle with lemon pepper. Cover pan tightly and reduce heat to medium. Cook an additional 6 to 8 minutes for frozen salmon or 3 to 4 minute for fresh/thawed fish. Cook just until fish is opaque throughout.
- To serve, spoon a dollop of sauce over each salmon portion; sprinkle on reserved olives and slivered onion.
