What's for Dinner, Barbara-jo?! Jochi Schuhberger's Salmon with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

Jochi Schuhberger's Salmon with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

I cooked this salmon for the summit of Clinton, Yeltsin and Mulroney as an appetizer. It is easy, fast, and everybody likes it. ~ Jochi


* 1/4 cup yogurt * 1/4 cup sour cream * 2 teaspoons of mayonnaise * 1 English cucumber, finely grated and squeezed dry * 1 bunch of dill, chopped * salt and white pepper * 1 whole filet of salmon, cut on an angle into slices


In a small bowl, combine the yogurt, sour cream, and mayonnaise. Mix well, then add the grated cucumber. Add the dill, salt, and white pepper to taste. Let rest in a cool place. (You can prepare the sauce up to a day in advance.)

Salt the salmon lightly and wrap in tinfoil with a good dash of water. Make sure the salmon is well wrapped. Place on a barbecue and cook for about 10 minutes. You can also place the wrapped salmon into an oven at 350 F for approximately the same amount of time. Or place the individual pieces into a shallow pan with lightly salted water and poach for about 5-10 minutes until opaque.

Once finished, serve at room temperature, covered with cucumber yogurt sauce and garnished with a sprig of dill. I also serve it with young, boiled potatoes and a light salad.
