Stay At Home Thursday

I have always like my fish and especially since we are trying to increase our Omega 3 fats intake. This recipe was so easy and tasty. I found this recipe in Nutrition Action Health Letter
if you have not read this you should give it a try. It is very informative and worth while. I like the fact, that the recipes all gave the calories, total fat, sodium, cholesterol, carbs, fiber and protein. They are not always listed in most recipes. We eat salmon at least once a week. The sauce that goes on top takes it over the top it is defiantly worth making. It would make a great salad dressing and low cal to beat. The apple, lemon juice and mustard are such a great combination. A three cup serving is 470 calories.
Salmon & Roasted Veggies

1 lb. small potatoes, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 lb. asparagus spears, trimmed and cut into 2" pieces
1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
4 6 oz pieces salmon or arctic char
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
1 stalk celery heart, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 425F. Toss the potatoes, asparagus, and pepper with the oil in a baking dish and roast until golden brown and tender, about 20 minutes, stirring once. Season with pepper and 1/4 teaspoon of salt and set aside. Heat a large non-stick pan on medium until moderately hot. Saute the salmon for 4 minutes on each side.
Make a sauce by pureeing the mayonnaise, mustard, apple, celery heart, lemon juice, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt in food processor. Top the salmon with the sauce. Serve with the roasted vegetables. Serves 4

Beautiful presentation!

I'm going to pass this along to my brother. He cooks for himself and eats fresh salmon quite frequently. He's always looking for delicious ways to prepare it for himself.

Next time you go to Reno, wave when you pass Winnmucca!! Or better yet, stop at the Visitors Center, where I work.
That smell of sagebrush is the best, isn't it?
And thanks for the concern about the babies... she's hangin' in there. 31 weeks today. Yay.

I'm going to make salmon tonight.
I love it.
