1.Preheat oven to 425 degrees, and while this is heating, add spices to salmon fillet.
2.Place an oven-safe pan on the stove over high heat. Once the pan is warm, add oil and let that warm for a couple minutes. Add salmon and sear for 1-2 min on each side.
3.Put the pan in the pre-heated oven (make sure your pan is oven-safe or use a sheet pan). Bake for 8-10 minutes.
4.Meanwhile make your dill yogurt sauce by mixing the greek yogurt, lemon juice and chopped dill in a blender (or whisk well by hand).
5.Once the salmon is done, let cool for a couple minutes then then assemble all ingredients on the sandwich.

We love a good salmon sandwich! However, this spiced-salmon fillet is also good on its own, over some seasoned rice, or in a bowl. Feel free to personalize this recipe, experiment with the flavors to make it your own.
