Supermarkets often supply recipes to encourage people to shop for the items they’ll need to make a given dish. These days, they will call a recipe “healthy” even if it’s still loaded with salt, fat and sugar. But one I received recently from my local Jewel store (owned by Albertson’s) actually might be healthy and tasty as well
It’s called one pan salmon. The ingredients list and my modifications and comments:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion (chopped)
3 cloves garlic (minced)
20 cherry tomatoes
1 cup dry white wine
4 cups chicken broth [I’d use the lowest sodium broth you can find here to cut salt]
1 lemon (sliced)
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt [cut this, not really needed with all the other flavors here]
12 ounces linguine [go for whole wheat to address sugar concerns you may have]
4 (4 oz) Waterfront BISTRO® Salmon Fillets [note the branding here, as I said, they want you to buy this but any salmon will do]
Here’s more on preparation:
Preheat a 12-inch sauté pan to medium high heat. Add olive oil and onion, sautéing until onion is translucent.
Add tomatoes, stirring occasionally, giving tomatoes time to get slightly charred and then burst.
Add garlic and cook one minute.
Pour in wine, scraping the bottom of the pan to pick up the brown bits. Add broth, lemon & seasonings.
Add pasta and bring to a boil.
Place salmon filets in and cover pan.
Cook 7-9 minutes, until pasta is al dente, and salmon is pink. Top with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and basil.
If you try this, let me know how it turns out.
