- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
- 1-3/4 pounds salmon fillet, preferably center-cut, skin removed , cut into 1-1/2-inch cubes
- 4 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 2 seedless cucumbers (1-1/2 pounds), cut into 2-by-1/2-inch sticks
- 1/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
- Pinch of sugar
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill, plus sprigs for garnish
- Lemon wedges for garnish
- Combine flour, salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge salmon pieces in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess.
- Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add half the salmon and saute until lightly browned on the outside but still pink on the inside, 4 to 5 minutes.
- Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan, add the remaining 2 teaspoons oil and return to the heat. Saute the remaining salmon and transfer to the plate.
- Wipe out the pan again and add cucumbers, broth and sugar.
- Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cover and simmer until the cucumbers are tender-crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.
- Uncover, increase the heat to high and boil until the pan juices are reduced to 2 tablespoons, about 3 minutes. Add the reserved salmon and dill to the pan, cover and simmer just until the salmon is opaque in the center, 2 to 3 minutes.
- Garnish with dill sprigs and lemon wedges.
