Baked salmon with lentils and sundried tomatoes

Published

on

Ingredients

4 salmon fillets
1 bay leaf
60g sun-dried tomatoes
150g rinsed lentils
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
salt and freshly ground pepper
Chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, chervil, thyme for garnish

Preparation

Heat the oil in a heavy saucepan or soup pot over medium heat and add the onion. Cook, stirring, until tender, about 5 minutes, and add 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the garlic.

Stir together for one minute, until fragrant, and add the lentils, sun-dried tomatoes, bay leaf, and enough water to cover by one inch.

Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 25 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste and simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes, until lentils are tender and aromatic. Taste and adjust seasoning. Remove the bay leaf and sun-dried tomatoes. Keep warm while you cook the salmon.

While the lentils are cooking, preheat the oven to 300° F. Cover a baking sheet with aluminium foil and lightly oil the rack. Place the salmon on top. Season with salt and pepper. Fill a roasting pan with boiling water and place it on the oven bottom.

Place the salmon in the oven and cook until fish flesh and white protein bubbles appear on the surface, 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the size of the fillets. Remove from the heat.

Using a slotted spoon, place a few spoonfuls of the lentils on 4 plates and place a portion of salmon on top. Sprinkle with herbs and serve.
