  • 1¼ pounds sustainable wild or farmed salmon, cut into 4 portions
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • ½ teaspoon salt, divided
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper, divided

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high.
  2. Brush salmon with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  3. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the salmon, turning once, until just cooked through, about 6 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, combine cucumber, cilantro and shallot with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and ⅛ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk yogurt, lemon juice, curry powder and the remaining ⅛ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  5. Serve the salmon with the yogurt sauce and the cucumber salad.
  • Tip: To oil your hot grill rack, soak a paper towel with vegetable oil and hold it with tongs to rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

THE best salmon recipe I have ever tried! So flavorful, and really easy to make. I pan fried the salmon and it was still great!
