February is National Heart Month and I have re-created one of my all time favourite oily-fish recipes.. Salmon topped with Greek Yoghurt & crushed Ryvita (with a sprinkle of heart healthy olive oil on top for good measure!).


It was my mum who actually introduced me to this recipe (see the first pic in the ‘pictures from other people’ section below!) and I couldn’t thank her enough.. This recipe is a hit even with people who don’t really like fish – for heart health ideally we should eat two portions of fish a week, one of which is oily (such as salmon or mackerel, sardine, pilchards, fresh tuna etc.).


Do let me know if you give this recipe a go!



  • 2 skinned fresh salmon fillets
  • ~6-8 tbsp fat-free Greek yoghurt
  • 2-3 seeded Ryvita (Rye crispbreads)
  • handful fresh chopped coriander
  • black pepper & olive oil
  • + salad/olives/asparagus to serve (+/- couscous)

*Nutritional stats may vary depending on the size of the salmon steaks used – sides not included


Coriander The apple wooden chopping board is from Wayfair in case you are wondering!


Salmon with Greek Yoghurt



Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees C (fan).

Step 2

Spread the salmon steaks with Greek yoghurt (mixed with the black pepper).

Step 3

Crush 1-2 Ryvita per salmon steak (depending on the size), add your fresh coriander & top onto the yoghurt generously. Sprinkle with black pepper & olive oil.

Step 4

Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes until cooked.

Step 5

Serve with salad leaves, olives & couscous (all optional!)

    AMAZING IDEA!! I topped mine with Mediterranean ryvitta, spring onion and chives. It was messy but I covered the entire steak in the greek yog and rolled it into the crushed up stuff as opposed to topping it. It was LOVELY!!!

    Great variation for salmon. Ate with greens- beans, broccoli etc and roasted vine tomatoes. Delicious and a firm favourite in our house. Kids love it too. 🙂

    Accidentally bought smoked haddock so it was a bit over powering! Will try again soon and buy normal fish fillets! But otherwise it was tasty and really easy to make, great with couscous and green beans. 😀 xx

      Hi Georgie! Thanks for your lovely comment – Maybe try with unsmoked haddock next time! Have a lovely weekend xx

    I’ll be honest I’m not normally a salmon fan but I really wanted to try this and WOW I used sweet onion ryvita and LOVED it! I’ve even told mum to try it, thanks for a great recipe idea!

    I have always hated salmon but this photo looked so good I decided to try it for lunch today. Used the pumpkin seed and oat ryvitas and had it with quinoa salad and it was amazing. I have now found a way to enjoy salmon. Thank you!

      No problem! Thanks for your brilliant photo – I’m just about to upload it! Nic xx

    I made this for dinner tonight & I must say, it’s the best way I’ve had salmon ever! I used cracked black pepper Ryvita’s for it & mixed some fresh herbs into the Greek yogurt before spooning it on. So flavoursome! Served it with lime & coriander cous cous & a green salad with olives. Divine!

      That sounds incredible – you make me want to remake it tonight!! Thanks for your comment Jen – I’ll be sure to upload any pictures that you send!! Thank you!! Nic x

    Made this recipe for the second time last night but this time swapped the ryvita for crushed almonds. delicious and thankyou to Nic for the inspiration 🙂

      Oooh what a great tip! That would make this recipe gluten free too, thank you!!

    Delicious! One of the nicest things I’ve cooked for ages. The salmon I had was Sainsbury’s lightly smoked, which was on sale. I mixed some garlic and ginger paste into the yoghurt with some shredded cucumber, and topped it with crushed Finn crisps. Roasted tomatoes with it, and served it with green beans and spinach. I wish I’d taken a photo to show you.
