Cucumber Dill Salmon

 

Do you remember FISH FRIDAY?

I have never been a huge fan of Salmon, I love salmon sandwiches but never one for cooking salmon. Until recently. I’ve said it earlier that we’re moving to the East Coast. I actually have found that I am so looking forward to fresh fish. NO matter what it is. I have to say that Salmon has moved up in ranks, I actually look forward to Friday’s!! 
 
SO I’ve been experimenting with different ways to cook Salmon. This is one I’m definitely loving. So for all you Catholics out there, give this a try on your Fish Friday! 
 
Give this a go and let me know , How many of you cook Salmon on the BBQ? IF you have any tips I’d love to know them.
 
CUCUMBER/DILL SALMON
 
Cucumber Dill Salmon Ingredients:
 
Olive oil
3-4 salmon filets
Salt and pepper
1 lemon, cut in 6 wedges
1/3 cup of English cucumber cut in pea size cubes
4 oz. light (or Greek yogurt) cream cheese
2 tablespoons of fresh dill, minced
1/4 cup + an additional 2-3 tablespoons of skim milk
 
Start by preheating the oven to 400 degrees then using an oven-safe skillet, drizzle a tablespoon of so of olive oil in and warm over medium heat.
 
Pat moisture from salmon using a paper towel then season it with salt and pepper adding it to the skillet.
Sear the salmon on both sides (if your salmon has the skin on, sear only on side without the skin). Squeeze the juice from one lemon wedge over the top of the salmon pieces and bake the salmon 6-8 minutes or until it’s firm and cooked through.
 
Remove the salmon from the pan onto a serving platter and on top of the stove over low-medium heat, add the milk and cream cheese to the same skillet. Season the sauce with salt and pepper and using an ‘S’ motion, combine 1/4 cup of skim milk and the cream cheese (if the mixture is too thick for you, add more milk one tablespoon at a time).
 
Turn off the heat and stir in the diced cucumber and one tablespoon of the fresh dill then spoon the creamy dill sauce over the salmon filets, garnish with the additional dill and serve with a lemon wedge.
 
This is one of my most popular recipes on the blog, several years running. Simple ingredients come together for such a really good dish.
