"Salmon is a good source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, so I try to prepare it once a week," Molly says. "That means I'm always looking for new recipes. This is a particularly good one. We like the texture of the cooked fish paired with the cool cream sauce."

"I omitted the curry on the salmon because we don't care for it. I sauteed the fillets in a small amount of olive oil in a nonstick skillet, then sprinkled with lemon juice. The cucumber sauce is delicious."
