Spice-Rubbed Salmon with Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

2 t brown sugar
1 t paprika
1 t chili powder
1 t ground cinnamon
1/2 t ground ginger
1 t coriander
1 t cumin
1/2 t ground black pepper
4 6 oz salmon fillet
1/2 c greek yogurt
1 cucumber; peeled, seeded, chopped
1 T lemon juice, fresh
2 clove garlic, crushed
1/8 t salt

1. Preheat the oven to 425. Mix the first 8 ingredients in a bowl. Rub evenly over both sides of the fillets and place them on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

2. Combine the remaining ingredients in a food processor until smooth. If you want a chunkier sauce, just stir the ingredients in a bowl. Greek yogurt is thicker than regular yogurt but regular yogurt will work fine too.

3. Spoon 1/4-1/2C cucumber-yogurt sauce over spiced salmon and serve.

Servings: 4
