This sauce can be served hot or cold. Use it as a cool dipping sauce for grilled salmon or top salmon with it before broiling.

Serves 4

1/2 cup 2 percent plain Greek yogurt

1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill

1/4 teaspoon finely chopped garlic

1 tablespoon Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

4 4-ounce fresh salmon filets

2 teaspoons vegetable oil, for grill or baking sheet

To make sauce, mix yogurt, lemon juice, mustard, dill, garlic and wheat germ in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Meanwhile, to grill salmon either on the barbecue or in a grill pan, heat grill or pan until very hot. Brush grill or pan with vegetable oil. Brush both sides of salmon with thin coat of oil. Place fish skin side down on grill, reduce heat to medium, cover and cook without moving until skin side is brown, well marked and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. (Try lifting fish gently with spatula after 3 minutes; if it doesn’t cleanly lift off, continue to cook, checking often, until it releases.) Flip fish and cook, covered, until centers of fillets are opaque, 2 to 6 minutes longer. Serve with prepared yogurt sauce on the side.

To broil salmon, preheat broiler. Line baking sheet with foil and lightly grease with oil. Place salmon filets on baking sheet. Evenly spread 2 tablespoons sauce over each piece of fish. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes or until desired doneness.

Note: When broiling, if the sauce is browning too fast and fish is not cooked through, move the baking sheet to the lowest rack in the oven to finish cooking the fish.

Nothing beats a homemade baked clam. We’ve left the clam whole and substituted wheat germ for the bread crumbs. You’ll see how delicious and nutritious they are.

Makes 12 baked clams

1 teaspoon chopped fresh oregano

1 clove garlic, finely chopped

2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

1/4 cup Kretschmer Original Toasted Wheat Germ

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 dozen small raw clams

Fresh lemon juice, to taste

  1. Turn on broiler. Line sheet pan with foil. Stir together oregano, garlic, Parmesan cheese, wheat germ and salt. Stir in olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile steam clams in pot with about 1/4 inch water in bottom until they open. (Discard any that do not open and do not overcook.) Once clams are cool enough to handle, remove top shells; loosen clam from the shell (but do not remove) with small spoon. 
  3. Spoon wheat germ mixture onto each clam. Squeeze fresh lemon juice to taste over clams. Place clams under broiler until lightly browned and crispy, 2 to 3 minutes.
