I love salmon! It's such a great source of protein and omega-3, not to mention it's yummy. Here is a quick and simple dinner for two featuring salmon....
Salmon with Rice and Cucumber-Dill Sauce
2 c. cooked rice
2 salmon steaks
1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
1/3 c. Grey Poupon dijon mustard
2 Tb. olive oil
1/2 c. plain yogurt
2 Tb. cucumber, chopped fine
1/2 tsp. dried dill weed
1/2 tsp. lemon zest
Directions: Prepare rice as directed (I used Jasmine rice and cooked it in vegetable broth for extra flavor). In a small bowl combine yogurt, cucumber, dill weed, and lemon zest. Set aside. Rinse salmon and pat dry. Sprinkle the salt and pepper evenly and rub into the fish. Spread the dijon mustard over each salmon steak evenly. Heat frying pan over med-high heat, add olive oil. Place salmon skin-side down in pan. Cook 3-4 minutes. Turn heat down to medium. Turn salmon over and cover with a large lid. Fry until just cooked through, about 4-5 minutes. Serve on a bed of rice and with a dollop of cucumber sauce. Place lemon wedges on each plate. Enjoy!
