Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, salmon is a heart healthy and delicious protein source. Pair this Mediterranean-inspired recipe with a simple green salad for dinner this week.

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 45 minutes | Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup lentils
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1 large celery stalk, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (6 ounces each)
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions:

  1. Heat broiler. Combine lentils and 2 1/2 cups water in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Add onion and celery; cover, and continue cooking until lentils and vegetables are just tender, 15 to 25 minutes more. Drain, reserving cooking liquid. Transfer lentils and vegetables to a medium bowl.
  2. In a bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons reserved cooking liquid with vinegar, oil, mustard, garlic, and parsley; season with salt and pepper. Toss half the dressing with the lentil mixture.
  3. Meanwhile, season salmon with salt and pepper. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray. Arrange salmon on sheet; broil until opaque throughout, 8 to 10 minutes. Spoon lentils onto plates; top with salmon, flaking it into large pieces, if desired. Drizzle with remaining dressing.

Variations:

Chopped celery leaves add a wonderful flavor to the lentils. Use them in place of or in addition to the parsley.

Notes:

The cooking time for lentils can vary widely depending on their age. Older lentils require more time. For the best results, we recommend buying a fresh, new bag.
