Fishy goals underway
In attempts to keep my 2016 goals for more than a week, I found another meal to make with fish – Salmon Niçoise Salad.
Fun name, even more fun to eat.
I probably shouldn’t really call it a Salmon niçoise as a traditional French, salade niçoise is a salad of tomatoes, tuna, hard-boiled eggs, Niçoise olives, and anchovies, dressed with a vinaigrette.
Um… I used hard-boiled eggs and tomatoes? So that counts, right?
Well, I want to use the fancy sounding French word Niçoise so we’ll go with it.
For my Salmon Niçoise salad, I used cold smoked salmon, roasted potatoes, corn, cucumbers, grapefruit segments, cherry tomatoes, hard-boiled eggs, fresh green beans and homemade croutons on a bed of spinach (not pictured is the homemade lemon vinaigrette that accompanied).
The homemade croutons were made by spritzing slices of thick whole-grain bread with cooking spray and sprinkling generously with course sea salt. They were then tossed onto a baking sheet and hung out in a 350* oven for 10 minutes.
Roast potatoes by microwaving them for 5 minutes so they’re fork tender. Then cut into chunks, toss with 1/2 TBSP butter (for every potato you roast-trust me, it’s enough) and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in 350* oven until golden (around 30 minutes).
