Salmon and White beans -- a Match made in Heaven

Salmon and White beans -- a Match made in Heaven

Hello Friends and Family,
By chance one night I had a combination of leftover salmon and white beans for dinner. It was so delicious that I searched out similar recipes on the internet. I happen to love salmon but the addition of the white beans tempers the taste of the fish so much that I think it's a great combination for those who don't happen to be salmon fans to begin with.
Below is a Martha Stewart recipe for steamed salmon with white beans. Last night, though, I just put grilled salmon on top of white beans (sauteed with a clove of minced garlic and a handful of spinach leaves) and it was also delicious.

Steamed Salmon with White Beans.
  • 2 cans (15.5 ounces each) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest (from 1 lemon), plus wedges for serving
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 4 skinless salmon fillets (4 to 6 ounces each)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add beans, zest, and rosemary and saute 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.
These are such quick and healthy meals -- and naturally rich in Omega-3s. I hope you enjoy this combination as much as I do.
Be well,
