  • 2 whole cucumbers
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons lime juice or use lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill (double the amount if using fresh)


  • Split the cucumbers lengthwise, scoop out the seeds and discard.
  • Grate the cucumbers coarsely.
  • Dump the grated cucumbers into a bowl and stir in the yogurt.
  • Mince the garlic. Stir into the cucumber-yogurt mixture.
  • Drizzle in the lime or lemon juice. Add the dill. Mix.
  • Taste the sauce. If you want it more tangy, add more lime or lemon juice. If you prefer a bit of saltiness, sprinkle in a little salt and stir. Adjust to your heart's delight. You're the one who's going to eat it so had better like the way it tastes.
  • Arrange your fried fish on a platter. Serve the sauce on the side.
