Grilled Salmon with Minted Cucumber Sauce

Grilled Salmon with Minted Cucumber Sauce


2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
1/3 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/3 teaspoon ground cumin
1 1/2 cups plain low-fat yogurt
1 1/4 tablespoon chopped fresh or 1 1/4 teaspoon dried mint
1 large cucumber, cubed, seeded, and peeled
5 (6-ounce) Chilean Salmon fillets
Fresh mint sprigs


Place garlic, salt, pepper, and cumin in a mixing bowl; mash to a paste with the back of a wooden spoon. Add yogurt and mint; stir well. Stir in cucumber gently, and set mixture aside.

Set up your grill for direct grilling, and preheat to high. Clean and oil grate (with vegetable oil).

Lightly brush olive oil on both sides of salmon fillets. Arrange fish on grate or place in grilling basket (the pieces should run diagonal to the grate), and grill about 3 minutes per side or until cooked to taste, rotating each piece 90 degrees after 1 1/2 minutes to create a crosshatch of grill marks.

Spoon cucumber sauce over salmon; garnish with mint. Serve immediately.
