IngredientsCucumber Dill Sauce
Here we have an adaptation of a old smoothie recipe. It is quite possibly the worst smoothie idea, ever, but it worked out to be a very tasty sauce.
We're going to combine 1 cup buttermilk, 1 seeded, peeled, chopped cucumber, 1 chopped green onion, 1/4 tsp dill, and a dash of salt in a blender.
Blend the heck out of that. The sauce doesn't pass along much of the buttermilk taste, which was a bit disappointing. Next time, I'd try sour cream instead. It was still a nice dill sauce that reduced well in the oven.
(Additional ingredients listed below in recipe).
In a dish that's a bit bigger than your 12 ounce salmon fillet, pour the blended sauce over the top, completely covering the fillet and leaving 1/8th to 1/4th inch of sauce at the bottom. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, or until the salmon is done.
Salmon Croquettes When the salmon is done, put it in a mixing bowl sans skin. Add 1 full egg (or 2 egg whites), 1 cup of fresh sourdough bread crumbs, 1/4 cup minced green onions, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce. The resulting salmon croquettes will be savory, and warm to the palette at any temperature. Stir the mixture until it forms a gooey paste. If you need to absorb liquid, add more sourdough crumbs. Form into patties, and place them on a baking sheet.
You know, I have a very nice, unused roll of parchment paper, but I didn't use it. I'd recommend it. Do as I say, not as I do. Bake the salmon croquettes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes, or until they're golden on both sides.
Oh man the salmon croquettes are done! Just right.
The salmon croquettes were quite savory, almost buttery. The dill sauce added a crispness without detracting from the strong flavors of the dish.
