Spice-Crusted Salmon With Ginger-Cilantro Yogurt Sauce

“DH, myself, and my aunt had this really tasty salmon recipe for dinner last night. It is from Bon Appetit. We all enjoyed it very much and will definitely have it again. We used 2% Greek yogurt for the yogurt sauce, which I recommend. I posted the recipe as I found it in Bon Appetit, however, DH had to cook the fish longer than 3 mins on each side. Then, because he was afraid of burning the outside of the fish, he finished it in the oven until it was not translucent. He said he basically browned the fish, then finished in the oven.”
