4 (4 ounce)
chopped fresh tomatoes
chopped fresh cilantro
My husband raved about this recipe; he said it was the best salmon he'd ever eaten! I liked it a lot too.
I made just a couple of changes. I used about half of the olive oil and butter the recipe called for; I don't think you need the extra fat. I also used fresh lemon juice and regular pepper instead of the lemon pepper. I sauteed some minced garlic in the butter/oil, then added the salmon (seasoned with salt, pepper, and fresh lemon juice). I also used fresh baby dill instead of cilantro and didn't use as much as the recipe called for, maybe 1/2 cup. The dill gave it a nice, mellow flavor. The salmon came out flaky and light, and none of the flavors were overwhelming. We will definitely be having this again!
Let me just add that we had two pieces of fish (about 4-5 oz each). If I were to do this for four pieces, I'd definitely double the sauce; it was just enough for two pieces in the proportions listed.
with mashed potatoes
I omitted the tomatoes and didn't bother with the couscous because we didn't have any. Let me be the first to say that this recipe is very tasty! The lemon pepper gives it a nice herby flavor with some zip. Thanks for sharing!
Easy fast delicious recipe. No cous cous. The left over sauce is delicious over mash potatoes.
This was so simple to cook, and very good. There wasn't much sauce for me to use in the end. And I added some cayenne pepper for a little spice.
I enjoyed this recipe. It was really quick and simple. It was my first time cooking fish, and this was an easy and delicious introduction.
I cooked rice instead of cous cous and served with sauteed spinach. I did remove the seeds before chopping my tomatoes. Next time, I will probably use a cup and a half of tomatoes. They were really good!
We just made this again, using sea scallops instead of Salmon. I use petite diced tomatoes (canned) instead of fresh, which allows for more juice. I leave out the water. Also, I leave out the cilantro because I don't like it. I really believe the couscous is such a great addition. We used the 5-minute Hodgkin Mills kind and it worked fine. The only problem is we eat it too fast! Thanks for the yummy recipe!
I thought this recipe was really great. Instead of using fresh tomatoe, I used canned stewed tomatoes and I took out the salt since the Lemon-Pepper sesoning already had some. I also added a sliced yellow onion. I served on top of rice. Very easy to make and this will make a BIG hit for dinner guest.I will definatley be using this recipe again. Yum, yum, yum!!!!!
