Looking for a low-fat, high-protein meal idea? Here’s an easy foil packet recipe: Baked Salmon with Dill Sauce.

I used nonfat Greek yogurt for the sauce, and the entire thing was only 125 calories, 1 gram of fat, and just 3 Weight Watchers Plus Points! The dill in our garden is growing nicely, so it was a great recipe for fresh herbs.

I made just one serving, but you could easily adjust the recipe to make more.

Place the salmon on the foil and season with salt and lemon juice.
