|1 cup||plain low-fat yogurt|
|1||English cucumber, shredded|
|2 Tbsp||fresh dill, chopped|
|1 tsp||lemon zest|
|1 Tbsp||olive oil|
|1||Non-stick cooking spray|
|4 – 5||ounce fish fillets (trout, salmon, arctic char)|
|1 lemon||cut in slices, split on one side and twisted|
|Pinch||lemon pepper or other flavour (non-salt)|
- Combine first 6 ingredients. Mix well, cover, refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Do not prepare more than two hours ahead or the cucumber might make the sauce watery. If this happens, drain off excess liquid and mix well again. Taste for seasoning.
- Spray a broiling pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Place the fish on the pan, season, place under the broiler 4 inches from the heat.
- Broil for about 8 minutes until fish flakes easily. Do not overcook.
- Serve with a twist of lemon on top and a cup of the sauce on the side. Serve the rest of the sauce in a bowl on the table with one cup of plain low-fat yogurt
