|Roasted Salmon and Lentils....a wonderfully easy meal!|
The night before everyone was leaving on their respective trips, I made the Roasted Salmon and Lentils for dinner. I had some concerns about this meal. First, I was sure that my husband would not eat lentils. Second, it didn't seem to be very kid friendly! However, my grandsons, husband and daughter-in-law love salmon. So, the salmon was in, and instead of the lentils (which I knew they would never eat) I would make a different side for them.
This dish was really very easy to put together. I've made lentils many times before and have always enjoyed them. My grandmother always served lentil dishes, especially during lent! I found this dish to be quite good. I prepared the lentils with the carrots, celery, onion and spices. When they were done, I diced up the veggies and mixed them in as Dorie suggested. The best part about the lentils was that my husband ate them and enjoyed them! Wonders never cease! However, the kids not so much. The roasted salmon was good, but seemed a little bland to me. In the future I would spice it up a bit more! I thought the paring of the lentils and salmon was delicious! Something I would not have tried without Dorie. I would definitely make this again...everyone thought it was very good! Happy friday everyone!
