Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup 2% Greek-style plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped peeled cucumber
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 (6-ounce) arctic char or salmon fillets, skinned
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Lime wedges (optional)

Preparation

  1. 1. Combine first 5 ingredients; chill.
  2. 2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fillets with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add fillets to pan; cook 3 minutes on each side or until done. Serve fillets with sauce and lime wedges, if desired.
  3. Wine note: This menu dances beautifully with the Weingut Knoll Loibner Grüner Veltliner Federspiel 2007 ($30). The cool dollop of cucumber yogurt is spun dizzy by citrus notes ranging from tart lime to sweet tangerine, and a long finish of green peppercorn is a subtle counterpoint to the coconut-intensified rice. --Alexander Spacher
