Salmon with White Beans
Recipe from Everyday Food
Husband-Tested in Alice’s Kitchen
Be sure to add this to your regular meal rotation. Not only is it delicious, but it’s quick and easy to make. Salmon provides Omega 3 and protein and the beans are full of good-for-you fiber. In a separate saucepan, steam up some fresh broccoli for a colorful and healthful side dish. Be sure to prep the ingredients before beginning because this dinner comes together very quickly. Start out sautéing the beans and rosemary. They create a bed for the salmon, acting as a steamer basket within the lidded skillet.
3 Tablespoons olive oil
2 cans (15.5 ounces each) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 Tablespoon finely grated lemon zest (from 1 lemon), plus wedges for serving
½ teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
½ cup chicken broth
4 salmon fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
½ cup fresh parsley
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium. Add beans, zest, and rosemary and sauté until fragrant, 1 minute. Add broth and salmon to skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until salmon is opaque, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with lemon wedges.
