Salmon always taste great when cooked on a barbecue - and this cucumber, sour cream and chive salad adds a refreshing twist


  • 4 x 75g (3 oz) salmon steaks
  • A little oil
  • 225g cucumber
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 (200g) tub sour cream and chive dip
  • Extra snipped chives to decorate if liked
  • Watercress salad to serve

To save time when slicing the cucumber, use the slicer on a cheese grater. Simple!


  1. Heat a griddle pan to high or prepare some barbecue coals. Rub the salmon steaks with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook skin side down on the griddle or barbecue for 5 mins, then carefully turn over with a fish slice and cook for a further 2 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, thinly slice a cucumber. Place the cucumber in a nylon sieve, sprinkle with a little salt and leave to drain for 5 mins.
  3. Transfer to a serving bowl and stir in a tub of soured cream and chive dip, sprinkle with the extra chives if using - then serve with the salmon.

This is my favourite BBQ recipe. I think meat can sometimes be a bit heavy and greasy on a hot day, so this is ideal. It's healthy, fresh and light, plus seems very easy to make. Whilst all the men are having big, juicy steaks...I'd be more inclined to enjoy this. All the fun of the BBQ and yet it wouldn't leave me bloated and with ketchup stains down my dress. ;)


this sounds absolutely delish, next time we have have a BBQ i think this will be on the menu - it contains 2 of my fave things - salmon and sour cream and chive and if i made this it would mean i got to have to all to myself because my hubby and daughter don't like either of them so i win :)
