Lizzie T. Leaf here with another dinner you’re sure to enjoy. 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
- 2 salmon fillets (6 oz. each)
- 2 tbsp. mayonnaise

- ½ cup chopped seeded peeled cucumber
- ½ cup vanilla yogurt
- ½ tsp. snipped fresh dill or ¼ tsp. dried dill

Lay salmon skin side down in a greased 11 x 7-inch baking dish. Spread 1 tbsp. mayonnaise over each fillet.
In a small bowl, combine 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.
Lizzie T. Leaf loved books since she opened her first one. Her dream was to write them herself. Lost in the hectic day to day world of family, job, laundry, and housework, writing became a distant memory. When the twinkling ember did spark, it was usually doused by someone demanding their share of her time.
Lizzie’s life went full circle. The desire to put the stories that continued to play in her head on paper emerged stronger than ever, and at a time when there was someone who encouraged. Now she lives her dream.
