Three ingredients you probably already have on hand--curry powder, yogurt and lemon juice--meld into a mouthwatering sauce that transforms simple grilled salmon. This healthy and easy dinner recipe comes together in just 20 minutes.
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.)

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!
