Cucumber with Soured Cream and Dill

Dill goes well with all cucumber or soured cream recipes. This combines both, and is a marvellous vegetable accompaniment to fish. It is also good made with some small, young courgettes.

 
 

Method

Heat the butter in a smallish pan and stir in the chopped spring onions. Cook for 2 minutes before tipping the cucumber. Now give them a good stir to coat with the butter, sprinkle with the dill, then cover and cook over a medium heat for about 8 minutes.
Shake the pan now and then to make sure none of the cucumber catches on the base of the pan.
As soon as the pieces are just tender (but still with a bit of 'bite' to them), turn the heat right down to minimum, stir in the soured cream and a little lemon juice, season with salt and pepper, and just let the cream or yoghurt warm through before serving.
