Baked Salmon with Cucumber Sauce

Top Review by Summer

I went to the Calgary Tower for dinner (which is one of those restaurants you can't walk out of without dropping $35-50 a plate) and had a similar entree, so I was looking for a copy recipe of this meal. This was perfect, tasted just like it, and very little prep/bake time! The sauce is delicious and really makes this meal. I received many compliments on this dish, from people that don't even like salmon. I added more sour cream because I wanted more sauce. This recipe is a keeper, and will look like you spent hours cooking, thank you so much for sharing it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the salmon on a large piece of lightly buttered foil on a baking sheet. Season lightly and sprinkle with lemon juice.
  2. Wrap loosely and bake at 170 C / 325 F / Gas 3 for 20-25 minutes until cooked. Leave to cool in the foil.
  3. Dice the cucumber very finely. Cook in melted butter for 2 minutes until translucent.
  4. Add wine to the pan, bring to the boil and simmer until all the liquid has evaporated - about 10 minutes - and the cucumber is 'dry'.
  5. Remove from the heat, stir in the cream and dill and check seasoning.
  6. Serve immediately with the fish.
