This classic French combo warms your soul while delivering a healthy dose of omega-3 fatty acids from the salmon and loads of iron, protein and fiber with the lentils.
Whether I'm preparing salmon for an easy weeknight dinner or for a nice evening with friends, this is my go-to restaurant-quality salmon recipe. The key is using a cast-iron pan at medium to high heat so the salmon gets nice and crispy. The fact that it's so easy to make is an added bonus!
Just a half cup of lentils per day provides protein, vitamins and minerals to help improve healthy health. This lentil recipe is even better the next day once the flavors have had some time to settle together. I love serving it warm with crispy salmon but it's also delicious chilled or at room temperature for picnics or on-the-go lunches.
