Mimi’s Salmon with Creamy Lemon Tarragon Sauce


Many years ago I made dinner for my boyfriend and his 7-year-old son (who are now my husband and our 28-year-old stepson).  I was really trying to win Jeff over and I knew he loved lobster.  So, I made a dish straight out of Gourmet Magazine featuring the classic combination of lobster and tarragon.  It was not the hit I expected — Jeff thought the tarragon tasted like soap.  Nice try! Recently, when I wanted to reintroduce tarragon to my line up of spices, I just sort of started adding stuff to greek yogurt to see what I could come up with.  I ended up with this sauce that perfectly complements poached salmon.
