Salmon with Cucumber-Horseradish Sauce
On the hottest summer evenings, quickly grill these butter-basted salmon steaks and serve with a chilled cucumber sauce.
Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens
4 6 ounces fresh or frozen salmon steaks, cut 1 inch thick (thawed, if frozen)
1/3 cup finely chopped cucumber
2 tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
1 tablespoon margarine or butter, melted
1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill or 1/4 teaspoon dried dillweed
Cucumber slices, halved (optional)
Fresh dill (optional)
Thaw fish, if frozen.
For sauce, in a small bowl combine cucumber, mayonnaise or salad dressing, yogurt, and horseradish. Cover and chill until serving time. Combine margarine or butter and dill; set aside.
Grill salmon on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 8 to 12 minutes or just until fish begins to flake easily when tested with a fork, turning once and brushing occasionally with margarine mixture. Serve salmon with sauce. If desired, garnish with cucumber slices and fresh dill. Makes 4 servings.
