Author Notes

This green sauce is great for fish—especially salmon. The fresh dill and oregano bring lots of herby, bright flavor, while the urfa biber adds subtle heat. Note: You can also use this as a salad dressing or dip for crudités. —Josh Cohen

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon urfa biber chile (or substitute 1/2 teaspoon chili powder)
  • 3/4 cup dill, loosely packed
  • 1/3 cup oregano leaves, loosely packed
  • 1 anchovy fillet (optional)
  1. Add all the ingredients to a high-powered blender, and blend until smooth. Taste the sauce. Adjust with more salt if you want (or more anchovy). Serve this sauce over fish, or use as a salad dressing or a dip for crudités. This sauce will last for a few days in the refrigerator.

I made this as a dip for deepfried whitebait rolled in chilli powder and flour. It was delicious and was loved by my foodie friends group. I only have a small hand held blender but that was enough. Looked good and tasted better!
