  • 3 ounces feta, crumbled (1/2 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 4 skin-on salmon fillets (1 1/2 pounds total)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 cucumbers (14 ounces total), cut into 1/2-inch slices


  1. In a small bowl, stir together feta, lemon juice, dill, and 2 tablespoons oil.

  2. Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Brush salmon with oil and season with salt and pepper. Place salmon, skin side up, on grill and cook until opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes, flipping once. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil. Lightly brush cucumbers with oil and season with salt and pepper. Working in batches if necessary, grill cucumbers until slightly softened and browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Top salmon and cucumbers with feta mixture and serve.

    Grilled Cucumbers, Easy, Delicious!

    The salmon and the feta topping were delicious, however as a family we decided the cucumbers would have tasted better had they NOT been grilled and remained raw.

    very easy and tasty; we peeled off the skins and it still tasted great
