Philly-20 Minute- Skillet-Salmon

My version of this recipe was a keeper. ... I actually intended to alter this recipe when I found it to accommodate what I had on hand. If you want to follow the original recipe, which probably is a bit more healthy, (skim milk, light flavored cream cheese) by all means, feel free. I won't be the least bit sad.
If you want to try it like me, then you will need some of this super yummy Herbed Seafood Rub from Costco.

Use a Tablespoon or so with a full package of cream cheese. You will want to double the yummy cucumber sauce and then will be enough for 4 salmon steaks.
INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon EVOO
4 salmon fillets
½ cup whole milk
One (226 gram) package PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese
1 ½ tablespoons Herbed Seafood Rub
1 cup chopped cucumbers
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill or 1 heaping Tablespoon Dried Dill
DIRECTIONS
1. Heat oil in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add salmon; sprinkle with Seafood Herbed Rub and Fresh Ground Pepper; cook 5 minutes on each side or until salmon flakes easily with fork. Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.
2. Add milk and cream cheese and Herbed Seafood Rub to skillet; cook and stir until cream cheese is melted and mixture is well blended. Stir in cucumbers and dill.
3. Return salmon to skillet. Cook 2 minutes or until heated through. Serve salmon topped with the herbed cucumber cream cheese sauce


Dennis thought it was very yummy and said he could eat salmon everyday when it's made like this. I'm glad, since we're eating it for our lunch tomorrow too!
I'm a fan of The Grocery Cart Challenge and put this recipe in Gayle's recipe swap for this week. Visit her site for frugal fun!
