Grilled Salmon with Buttermilk Mint Sauce

My Monday posts should really be called Sunday suppers because that is what I'm usually sharing. More often than not, these days, the weeknights are a blur of pieced together dinners.

It is so nice to begin the week with a meal to be savored and this one was. Grilled salmon on a bed of sauteed greens all topped with an incredible fresh herb sauce. 

I adapted the recipe from from Simple Fresh Southern and I can't wait to try many more from the Lee Bros.

Salmon with Buttermilk-Mint Sauce

Adapted from The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern

1/2 cup fresh mint, chopped
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup greek yogurt (the recipe calls for sour cream, but we were out)
1 tsp kosher salt
3 tsp evoo
1 lb skin on salmon fillets
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

-Combine mint, buttermilk, creme fraiche, and 1/2 tsp salt in food processor.  Pulse until thoroughly combined. 

-Rub salmon with evoo, S&P and then grill, cook about 10 minutes per each inch of thickness in your fillet

-Meanwhile, wilt some leafy greens over a hot skillet and some evoo. I used spinach, but this could also be great with swiss chard. 

-Serve salmon on top of sauteed spinach, with spoonfuls of buttermilk-mint sauce
