It's Wednesday. So What's Cooking?

How about dinner with Lizzie T. Leaf?

This week my awesome friend from Colorado steps in to help me out. So take it away, Lizzie!

HI Everyone,

This salmon recipe has a wonderful flavor and is a breeze to prepare. It also tastes good without the sauce. Add fresh green beans, a little pasta, and a chilled bottle of white wine and you have a meal fit for royalty.

Salmon with Cucumber Sauce

Fish
2 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
½ cup finely chopped pecans
½ cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. minced fresh parsley
1 tbsp. butter, melted



Cucumber Sauce
½ cup chopped seeded peeled cucumber
½ cup vanilla yogurt
½ tsp. snipped fresh dill or ¼ tsp. dried dill
¼ tsp. garlic powder

Preheat oven to 425°.

Lay salmon skin side down in a greased 11 in. x 7 in. baking dish. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise over each fillet.

In a small bowl, combine the pecans, bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, parsley and butter; spoon over salmon.

Bake 10-15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cucumber sauce ingredients. Serve with the salmon.

Yield: 2 servings
