Spring is beautifully expressed in a lovely dish of poached salmon, cool dill sauce and sweet roast asparagus. Don’t be fooled by poaching, it’s simply simmering something in liquid until cooked through. It couldn’t be easier and I know once you try it you’ll love it! And happily, it doesn’t add any fat to the dish so it’s a calorie-concious way to cook. You can poach eggs, fish and chicken breasts with ease. I often poach chicken breasts in hot chicken broth then cool and shred for chicken salad. Poaching is an easy and elegant skill to master. Give it a try and let me know how you like it! Poached salmon with dill sauce might be the perfect romantic dinner for two!
wild caught salmon
Here’s a heart healthy and delicious recipe loaded with Omega-3’s to add to your collection. I make these all the time! Honestly, this is one of my ‘go-to’ dinner recipes and the best part? You can use canned (wild caught) salmon! Or use fresh if you chop it up or pulse it a few times in the food processor. It also works fabulously with fresh crab meat.
Even my friends who don’t love fish love these salmon patties. They are crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, full of flavor and easy to make. Mix everything together and form into patties in the morning and at dinner time, all you have to do is cook them for 4-5 minutes on each side, just enough time to throw together a quick green salad and steam a veggie!
