I make salmon often, so I experiment with it. I use pistachios in this version for crunch and a sauce inspired by the cream cheese on my bagels. —Devon Delaney, Westport, Connecticut

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup onion and garlic salad croutons
  • 1/2 cup pistachios
  • 1 large egg white, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 4 salmon fillets (6 ounces each), about 1 inch thick
  • 4 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1-1/2 cups julienned fresh carrots
  • 1-1/2 cups julienned yellow summer squash
  • 1-1/2 cups julienned sweet red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup radishes, halved and finely sliced
  • Lemon wedges, optional

Directions

Pulse croutons and pistachios in a food processor until finely chopped. Whisk egg white with water. Pat salmon fillets dry; dip in egg white, then roll in crouton-pistachio mixture. Refrigerate 30 minutes. Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, lemon juice, dill and capers until well blended.
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add carrots, squash, peppers and salt; cook and stir until tender and lightly caramelized, 6-8 minutes. Remove.
In same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat. Add salmon; cook 1 minute on each side until golden brown. Place skillet in oven; bake until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, about 8-10 minutes. Serve vegetables with salmon; top with sauce. Sprinkle with radishes. If desired, serve with lemon wedges. Yield: 4 servings.

"This was such a delicious, easy meal. The cream cheese sauce really gives the salmon a nice flavor and I will make another batch of it with the remaining 4 oz. to spread on my bagel in the morning. Next time I make this recipe, though, I will probably cook my veggies in a separate skillet while the salmon is in the oven so that they are finished at the same time. Thank you for sharing!"

"Wow is this a delicious meal! I omitted the capers because I'm allergic, but the sauce was still tasty. It makes a beautiful presentation for company as well. I served small baked red potatoes on the side and that was a nice compliment to the other flavors. Thanks for this wonderful variation!"
