Quick & Easy Tuesday Dinner

Since I was slacking last week and didn't post a recipe on Friday I thought I'd mix it up and post one now. Here's a quick and easy recipe I found in the Quick & Easy section on Canadian Living.

Microwave Salmon & Cucumber Salad
4 salmon fillets (1-1/2lb or 750g)
1/4 cup (50mL) chopped fresh chives or green onions
1/4 tsp (1mL) salt
1/4 tsp (1mL) pepper
1/2 lemon
1/3 cup (75 mL) thinly sliced red onions
1/4 cup (50 mL) 2% plain yogurt - I would use Fat Free
1 tbsp (15 mL) lemon juice
1 tsp (5 mL) granulated sugar
1/2 tsp (2 mL) dried dillweed
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
3 cups of thinly sliced cucumbers

Salad: In bowl, soak onion in cold water for 15 minutes; drain and pat dry. In bowl, whisk together yogurt, lemon juice, sugar, dillweed and sa< add cucumber and onion.
Place salmon in microwaveable dish; sprinkle with chives, salt and pepper. Cut lemon in half lengthwise; cut crosswise into paper-thin slices and arrange over salmon. Cover and microwave at High until fish flakes easily when tested, 3 to 5 minutes. Serve with cucumber salad.
Additional Info:
To cook salmon on stove top, bring 1/2 cup (125 mL) water to boil in large skillet. Add salmon, chives, salt, pepper and lemon. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until fish flakes easily when tested, about 10 minutes.

Let me know how your Tuesday night dinner goes!

Enjoy the Party,

Nicole :)
