If vegetables aren’t your thing on their own, try this recipe. You’ll only notice the veggies as a yummy accompaniment to this delicious salmon recipe.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6 ounces) wild salmon fillets, skin and pin bones removed
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons shallot, minced
  • ¼ cup plus 1 tablespoon, olive oil, divided
  • Sea salt
  • Ground black pepper 
  • ½ pound green beans, trimmed or asparagus
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 4 radishes, thinly sliced


Instructions

In a medium bowl, whisk together vinegar, shallot, and ¼ cup oil; season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

In a pan of boiling water, cook the green beans until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes.

Season salmon with salt and pepper. In a large non-stick skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat; add salmon, skinned side up, and cook 2-3 minutes each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.  

Arrange green beans on 4 plates. Top each with a salmon filet. Spoon vinaigrette over salmon; scatter tomatoes and radishes on top and serve.
