“I never liked salmon until my husband, Jim, created this healthy, delicious entrée,” confesses Pat Ockerman. “Now, all we have to do is mention to friends we're having salmon for dinner and we have happy guests!”
"After enjoying a similar Italian dish at a restaurant, I decided to crate this recipe," says Michele Salazar. "My husband loves it." In her Plain City, Ohio kitchen she smothers a salmon fillet with artichoke hearts, olives and diced tomatoes.
"Salmon is a good source of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, so I try to prepare it once a week," Molly says. "That means I'm always looking for new recipes. This is a particularly good one. We like the texture of the cooked fish paired with the cool cream sauce."
You won't have to fish for compliments with this tasty recipe developed by Country Woman's Test Kitchen. Poaching is a quick and healthy way to prepare an entree as delicate as fish, keeping it moist and tender while cooking. And the flavorful spinach sauce adds a pretty green accent to the pink salmon.
A flavorful pesto helps keep the fish moist, and toasted bread crumbs give the entree a nice finishing touch. “I like to use fresh basil from the garden for this easy dish,” notes Lee Bremson of Kansas City, Missouri.
The fish dishes Melissa Merrill relies on are all family-approved. "They love this salmon...and I like that it's so good for us!" she notes from Hatteras, North Carolina. "I grow my own herbs and love using them in recipes like this one."
