Pan-Seared Salmon with Dill Sauce

This is one of my husband's favorite recipes. Salmon is a go-to for busy nights because it cooks so quickly and goes with so many different flavors. The creamy dill sauce with cucumber tastes light and fresh. —Angela Spengler, Tampa, Florida


1 tablespoon canola oil
4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup reduced-fat plain yogurt
1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup finely chopped cucumber
1 teaspoon snipped fresh dill


In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salmon with Italian seasoning and salt. Place in skillet, skin side down. Reduce heat to medium. Cook until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, about 5 minutes on each side.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine yogurt, mayonnaise, cucumber and dill. Serve with salmon.

Test Kitchen tips
Try the sauce with roasted or baked potatoes.
Keep an eye on the salmon. If the skillet gets too hot, the outside of the salmon will get too dark before it's cooked through.
Health tip: This nutritious salmon dish provides about 2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids. Salmon is one of the best sources for this healthy fat.
