Wild salmon is high in Omega-3’s and is a good source of calcium, so eating more of this firm fleshed, bright orange fish is a good move for most of our diets. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention how delicious it is. Especially when this fast and fresh meal is paired with herb roasted potatoes and a creamy spinach soufflé.
Wild Salmon Mignon with Herb Roasted Potatoes and Spinach Soufflé
Start to finish: 25 minutes
Hands on time: 15 minutes
2 salmon mignon fillets, about 6 to 8 oz each
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion, diced
8 Herb Roasted Fingerling Potatoes from the To-Go Case, thinly sliced
6 oz Parmesan Spinach Soufflé from the To-Go Case
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Salt and pepper the salmon filets. Add the olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the fish to the pan and cook for about 3 minutes on the first side, flip them over and cook for another 2 minutes. Transfer the fish to a plate. It won’t be cooked through yet.
Add the onion to the pan and cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes or until softened. Add the potatoes and cook them, tossing every now and then to heat them through, about 3 minutes. Spread the spinach soufflé over the potatoes, cover the pan with a lid and heat for another 3 minutes or until the soufflé is warm. Top the soufflé with the salmon and transfer the uncovered skillet to the preheated oven for another 10-12 minutes to finish cooking the fish and get all the ingredients good and hot. Cut the netting surrounding the perimeter of the fish with kitchen scissors or a sharp knife.
Serve on heated plates.
Tip: To heat plates, first be sure they are microwave safe and don’t have any metal decorations. Stack 2 microwave-safe plates in the microwave and heat on high heat for 1 minute. Check to test the temperature of the plates. Some heat more quickly than others. If they aren’t warm enough, heat for another 30 seconds.
