DIRECTIONS REPARATION TIME: 1 Hr.

 

 

Prepare sauce in advance. Peel the cucumber, slice in half lengthwise, and remove seeds with a teaspoon. Chop into 1 pieces and transfer to a small food mill. Add the lemon juice and grind until uniformly fine. Place a coffee filter into a small sieve over a pan, and add the ground cucumber. After about 20 mins. scrape the cucumber solids into a small bowl, and reserve the cucumber juice. Add the sour cream, ground garlic, and dill, and mix well. Refrigerate.

 

Wash the salmon filet under cold water, rubbing the surfaces liberally with a clean hand. Place in a bowl containing the cucumber juice and white wine. Allow to marinate in refrigerator for at least one hour, preferably three or more.

 

Grill the Salmon on a preheated grill over a low flame, skin side up, for 4-6 minutes. Flip over, and continue for another 4 mins, or until the flaked fish is still slightly translucent in the center.

 

Serve immediately with a generous helping of the Cucumber Sauce.
