Pan-Fried Salmon with Cucumber Dill Yogurt Sauce

1                        salmon fillet
1/2                     lemon, juice
1                        Japanese cucumber
1 teaspoon         dried dill or 1 tablespoon fresh dill
2 tablespoons    plain yoghurt
1 pinch              cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon      olive oil
                          salt and black pepper


Season salmon fillet with lemon juice, salt and pepper. 

Heat up the olive oil in a frying pan on high heat. When the pan is hot, place the salmon skin side down. Lower heat to medium high and fry for 5 minutes. Turn the salmon over and fry for another 4 minutes. The salmon should be still slightly raw in the middle. 

Peel off the skin of the Japanese cucumber. Chop the cucumber finely and add in 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Leave aside for 10 minutes.  Squeeze off excess water.

Mix the yoghurt, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, dill, cayenne pepper and cucumber together. Serve with the pan-fried salmon.
