Citrus Salmon with Veggie Saute - Improv


It has been a long while since I participated in the Improv Cooking Challenge and I hope, I remember what we are supposed to do.  We will find out together.  Thanks Kristen for your welcome back and your leadership in the Improv Challenge.  You can find Kristen at the Frugal Antics of a Harried Homemaker.

I don't think that I am a citrus person but in truth when I use any citrus flavor I enjoy the food.  Therefore, at first, when I heard that it was Lemon and Lime, I was not excited.  Adding to this, I found this out on Monday and had to come up with something, all in the middle of report cards, company, babysitting for my precious granddaughter and life in general.  I did come up with an interesting cake which I still plan to make.  It used a lemon-lime soda in the ingredients and that sounds like fun.

I ended up with a salmon and vegetable dish with the main flavors as lemon and lime although I added a little orange juice as well.  The recipe is from Taste of Home although I made major changes to the vegetable part.

Ingredients:

3 salmon fillets
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1 teaspoon Herbs de Provence seasoning
1 medium sweet red peppers, sliced
1 medium sweet orange peppers, sliced
1 large red onion, halved and sliced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup frozen cauliflower thawed
1 cup frozen broccoli thawed


Method:

Place salmon in a  9-in. baking dish; add lemon, lime and orange juices.

Sprinkle with  seasoning. 

Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet coated with olive oil, saute  peppers and onion in oil for 3 minutes.

 Add the broccoli and cauliflower; cook and stir 3-4 minutes longer or just until vegetables reach desired doneness.  Serve with salmon. 

Eat and enjoy.
