Blackened Salmon With a Cucumber Dill Cream

Blackened Salmon Cucumber Dill Cream

      This was one of those perfect dinner meals that anyone can make. Perfect for the bachelor, perfect for that romantic dinner for two, or perfect for anyone wanting a healthy and delicious meal. I chose to use a simple store bought blackening seasoning, however you can make a quick one yourself by combining the typical ingredients that are usually in a blackening seasoning. I have found a really good one at my local store that I love to use. Combine with the cooling of the cucumber dill cream sauce and you have the perfect balance of hot and cold in this dish. Blackened Salmon with Cucumber Dill Cream.


  • 2 salmon fillets
  • Blackening Seasoning
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2/3 cup cream
  • 1 tbs dill
  • 1 tbs lemon juice

1. Generously rub the blackening seasoning on both sides of the salmon fillets.

2. Grill skin side down first over a hot grill for about 3 minutes until the marks are present and the salmon gently lifts off the grill. Flip and grill other side.

3. Place salmon in oven safe dish and bake for roughly 5-10 minutes at 350 degree or just until medium or to your preference.

4. Meanwhile slice up cucumber into small chunks. Cook in a saute pan with dill, cream and lemon juice just until tender. Serve over cooked salmon.

This salmon dish is truly one of my best inventions I have had. Give it a try.

  1. Would this cuke sauce work well with chicken or beef?

    1. I think it would go great with Chicken especially if blackened. Beef not so sure. I like the combination of the spice from the blackening seasoning against the coolness of the sauce. Give it a try.
