Poached Salmon with Probiotic Avocado Dill Sauce

Poached salmon is one of my favorite ways to prepare this fish. It’s very easy and flavorful, plus it doesn’t stink up the house during cooking like oven-baked fish does. Salmon and fresh dill are marriage made in heaven. Tangy fresh sauce made with kefir, avocado, dill and chives beautifully complements even the most unintended attempt at a healthy meal. And the combination of salmon red and the green of the sauce render a beautiful mouth-watering presentation.
