Salmon with Cucumber and Cream Sauce

2 x 2 pound Salmon fillets, 1" thick
2 tbl Butter melted
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbl Chopped chives
2 cup Whipping cream
2 med Cucumbers peeled, seeded, and cubed
Juice of 2 or 3 lemons

Method:Place salmon fillets in greased baking dish. Brush butter onto the salmon and season with salt and pepper. Top with chives. Pour cream into baking dish. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes, or until fish begins to flake. (Thinner fillets may require less time.)
Remove fillets from the oven and add lemon juice and cucumber. Baste the salmon well and return the dish to the oven, uncovered, for an additional 15 minutes.

I found this recipe on (my favorite recipe website!). It was a big hit with my family and pretty easy. I was in a rush, so I actually did the first part of cooking in the microwave and the last 15 min in the oven.
