Nichola offered; 
> Take Cucumbers and peel them leaving them whole,
> Using a Mandolin set with the smallest "Julienne" setting possible,
> shave the cucumber down into thin "noodles" stopping just at the seeds.
> (You don't want the seeds...) (Well ok we do eat that part but usually
> while cooking ;) )
> Anyways repeat that until you have a pile of "noodles"
> Set the oven temperature to whatever you think will cook the salmon and
> not burn the noodles later...
> Using a pan that can go into the oven, sautee the cucumber noodles in
> olive oil until slightly done... plop the salmon on top
> (Oh sorry season with salt pepper garlic powder etc... whatever you
> like) then plop it on top.
> Remove from heat and place in oven... cook until the salmon is just
> done... almost under done...
> Remove from oven.  (Turn off oven Hey I forget sometimes...)
> Return the pan to the stove top and add in Tzatziki (or however that is
> spelled)
> Oh yeah sorry 3 days before you make this dish make some tzatziki sauce...
> Ok Now dump that over the whole thing and add in fresh herbs and
> garlic.....
> Cover and heat for another 5 minutes....
> This makes the salmon absolutely tender and perfectly done and heats the
> sauce perfectly
> Salt and pepper as desired...
> Enjoy
Oh, wow!  Yummm!  Something I would have never thought of, but I *love* Greek
food, and cucumbers and tzatziki, so I'll definitely have to try this one some
time soon.
