When I’m starving after work, I want a fast meal with no-fail technique. Roasted salmon is uber-tender and has a delicate sweetness. It’s also an easy wowza for company. —Jeanne Ambrose, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Tropical fruit lends a summery taste to Mary Beth Harris-Murphee's easy salmon main course. “Make the salsa the night before and serve it with cellophane noodles or jasmine rice for a fast and delicious meal,” she writes from Tyler, Texas.
While the soup simmers, assemble tasty Mozzarella Tuna Melts. Using a mini food processor to chop the celery and onion for the filling helps shave preparation time. Then just pop the sandwiches in the oven.
I'm a real pasta fan and I like fish as well, so I decided to combine the two. When my granddaughters are over, I make this dish in tart tins, so each girl can have her own pie. That works for both pint-size and senior-size appetites.—Mrs. Ruth Lee, Troy, Ontario
"My husband isn't big on seafood, but he dives into this dish," notes Edna Lee of Greeley, Colorado. "Lemon enhances the mild-tasting sole, and the broccoli and cheese stuffing makes this fish special enough for company."
"I used to work with a cook who considered this sandwich one of his specialties," says Denise Hollebeke of Penhold, Alberta. "Once I tried it, I could see why. It's a great change from a traditional tuna sandwich."
This is an amazing dish. It’s so easy, yet so elegant. The veggies steam the fish from the bottom, and covering the fillets with a crunchy topping keeps them moist.
