Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat grill to medium-high.

  • Brush salmon with 1 tablespoon oil and sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

  • Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the salmon, turning once, until just cooked through, about 6 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine cucumber, cilantro and shallot with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk yogurt, lemon juice, curry powder and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl.

  • 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.)
