I got a free subscription to Bon Appetit with my new Bon Appetit cookbook. I immediate set to work tearing out recipes and completely ignoring all articles. On the list of things to try is: wild rice and mushroom stuffing, sausage and lentils with spinach, pork tenderloin stir-fry with tangerines and chili sauce, and this salmon recipe. Being that I had both cilantro and broccoli in my box and rice in the pantry, this seemed like an easy and relatively cheap dinner.
I was very pleased with this recipe. The salmon was moist and flavorful. I added at least twice as much cilantro as suggested (only because I have so much at home) and I still thought that it didn’t dominate the dish. If anything, I thought the lime was a bit too much. It was fine on the fish, but it ran off onto the rice and veges where it overpowered the chicken broth flavor. Next time I’ll add a little less lime juice or more honey.
The best part of the meal is the lack of dirty dishes.
Everything is cooked in the same casserole. The meal looks fancy, but it couldn’t be easier to make. I’ll definitely save this recipe and add it to my collection. I don’t usually make salmon for various reasons, but this will be my new go to recipe.
You can find the recipe here.
