Are you looking for a delicious, satisfying, and healthy meal? Look no further than “Roasted Salmon and Lentils”! It’s this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe.
This recipe is a lesson in cooking lentils du Puy, or French green lentils. They are simmered to perfection with onion, a clove, carrot, celery, bay leaf, and chicken broth. A few of the lentils are removed and pureed, then the veggies are chopped and mixed back in. The result is very flavorful!
The salmon is simply roasted in the oven with a bit of olive oil, salt and pepper.
I loved this meal, and so did my daughter. She has always liked salmon, but she really liked the lentils too. She even had seconds! My husband liked the salmon and “tolerated” the lentils.
You can find the recipe for “Roasted Salmon and Lentils” in Dorie Greenspan’s book Around My French Table. If you don’t have this wonderful book you really should get it!
