Salmon on a Bed of Lentils

November/December 1995, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 4.5 (12 votes)

Simmered with carrots, turnips and thyme, the lentils make a lovely, hearty bed for the salmon fillets, which are gently cooked on top of them for easy one-dish preparation. Green (Le Puy) lentils are smaller and more delicate than other varieties and hold their shape better during cooking.

The lemon is more than a garnish. It really enlivens the flavor.

This had plusses and minuses. It was quick and easy to prepare and the lentil mixture was well-seasoned with the shallot and garlic. The salmon could use a little something else- I salted and peppered it before steaming, but I think more seasoning plus some parsley or ? Would have given it more flavor as well.
