This is one of those recipes that was emailed to me and sounded so good. I haven't tried it so I can't say if its good or not but it does have promising ingredients. The recipe is from The Eating Well Diabetes Cookbook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a shallow dish, combine the flour, salt and pepper.
  2. Dredge the salmon pieces in the flour mixture, shaking off excess.
  3. Over high heat, heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet.
  4. Add half the fish and sauté until lightly browned on the outside but pink on the inside, approximately 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Transfer to plate and wipe out the pan; add the remaining oil and return to heat.
  6. Sauté the remaining salmon and transfer to plate.
  7. Wipe out the pan again and add cucumbers, broth and a pinch of sugar.
  8. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, cook and simmer until the cucumbers are tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.
  9. Uncover, increase the heat to high and boil until pan juices are reduced to 2 tablespoons, approximately 3 minutes.
  10. Add the salmon and dill to pan cover and simmer just until salmon is opaque in the center, 2 to 3 minutes.
  11. Garnish with dill sprigs and lemon wedges.
