1. Preheat the broiler. Line a broiler pan with foil and spray the foil with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Peel and finely chop the cucumber. Mince the bell pepper. Melt the margarine in a small saucepan.
3. In a small bowl, combine the melted margarine with 1 tablespoon of the fresh chives, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper.
4. Place the fish on the broiler pan. Spread the chive mixture over the fish and broil 4 inches from the heat until the fish is opaque and just flakes when tested with the tip of a knife, about 7 minutes.
5. Meanwhile, in a medium-size bowl, combine the sour cream, yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest (if using), mustard, the remaining 5 tablespoons fresh chives, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Stir in the cucumber and bell pepper.
