Salmon and Cucumber

         1½ lb Salmon Fillet, skinned and de-boned, cut into 4 pieces
         3 cups thinly sliced Cucumber with peel
         ½ cup Scallion, chopped                
         3 tbsp fresh Cilantro, chopped
         3 tbsp freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
         1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
         1 tbsp Soy sauce
         1½ tbsp fresh Mint, chopped
         2 tsp Jalapeno peppers, minced
         Salt & Pepper to taste

    Prepare the salad by chopping the cucumber, scallions, jalapeno
    peppers, fresh mint and fresh cilantro, and tossing together.

    Preheat a largish skillet on medium heat for 2 minutes. Next rub the
    lemon juice, salt and pepper into salmon to season it.

    Place the salmon in the hot skillet for 2-3 minutes to sear and then turn it
    over and cook the other side for a further 2-3 minutes.

    Next mix the salad dressing by whisking together the soy sauce, lemon
    juice, salt, pepper and olive oil together while the salmon is cooking.

    Drizzle the salad dressing over the cucumber salad, toss and serve on
    dinner plate. When the salmon is cooked, remove from heat and place
    the pieces on the bed of cucumber salad. Garnish with a sprig of cilantro
    and serve.
